Another problem that I continually face here is that everything is in km…and I have no idea how far away that is. Having to divide by 8 and multiply by 5 (or is it the other way around?!) every time somebody tells me where something is quickly becomes a bit of a hassle. And as you can tell…I’m not very good at it!
And the other day somebody at base made an announcement that somebody had had their baby – and gave the baby’s weight in kilos. Apparently the baby was quite small…I was simply left in a confused state. I can just about manage with pounds to dollars, but everything else here is still a little lost on me I’m afraid.
