Happy Birthday, Luke!

My beloved brother is living with some pre-Columbian Brazilians and learning to speak Tucano somewhere in the farthest upper reaches of the Rio Negro, near Brazil's border with Colombia, so it was a sort of miracle of telecommunications that I was actually able to speak to him in person all the way from McMurdo and wish him a happy birthday.

We're thinking of you and toasting your adventures!

I'm the good looking one.

Yay! Happy birthday Luke!

Direct communications between McMurdo and the Amazon are of course a technological marvel bordering on scary.

Not to ruin the mystique but the local tribal chief has wireless in his maloka and I thought I would take the opportunity to thank you, Richard, for the call, even though it was so rudely interrupted when the last of your huskies, in the throws of hunger induced demensia, tried to eat off your gangrenous and frostbitten leg. Stay chipper!
-Luke

....all I would like to know:
WHO took this PHANTASTIC PICTURE...?

Although it is antarcticiana policy to include a photo credit whenever possible, the famous "brothers-in-suits" image is of uncertain provenance. Thought to have been taken outside a church in the West Village by a family elder on the occasion of the baptism of a family younger. Claimants for credit need merely apply unanonymously.
