  • The planet is bad, Fox Glacier is a wonderful example. Nice panels tell you how to have a more sustainable consumption while helicopters pollute over your heads... A big joke. The glacier is really disappointing, there is almost nothing to see.

  • Who asks which of the two glaciers is more beautiful I answer: they are both interesting but this becomes more beautiful if only for the fatigue to reach the maximum point. To you the ardua sentence.
