Guadalcanal 2019

Guadalcanal 2019 Tour boat, ice-blue water. Five rubber rafts, 12 heroes each, approach Antarctic 'beach'. ‘Explorer’: 'Look! Penguins!' Rest chirp approval, focus Canons, shoot the penguins left and right. 'Great' 'Wonderful'. Two hours later, 3-star restaurant, Tierra del Fuego. 'Global warming...' from the end of the table. Heads nod assent. Crab dinner, good Sauvignon Blanc. 'This is great!' 'Wonderful!' Are they talking about the crab? Or the penguins? Does it matter?
