Jack Garfein – shearing a workshop with him.

Jack Garfein survived imprisonment at Auschwitz and came to the United States at the end of World War II. He was born in Mukacevo, Carpathian Ruthenia, Czechoslovakia, now Mukacheve, Ukraine. He is 84 years old and travels from Paris where he lives and also teaches to New York to do this workshops for students…like me…

I had the opportunity to be in one of his workshops in New York and it was fantastic he is still alive there is no age at all on him.

I had a good experience like life is not easy but you are walking everyday.

Antarctic Trip Part-4

 

Those are pics form Gibbs Island. It is 13 km long and 2 lm wide. James Weddell, whose chart of the islands appeared in 1825, was apparently the first to use the current name.

This type of penguins are Gentoo Penguins grow to a height of 60-80 cm. They weigh up to 8.5 kg. In the northern breeding areas, egg deposition already begins in  June, while in the southern regions it does not start before mid  September.

The color of the eyes of the Chinstrap penguins  are dark orange to brown with a height of 68-76 cm and a weight of up to 5,3 kg. They are smaller than the Gentoo Penguins. The female usually lays two eggs which are initially incubated by the male while the fame goes back to the sea to store additional fat. Then the parents take turns incubating the eggs. The chicks hatch after 31 to 39 days and are fed by their parents for another 48 to 59 days.  Their diet primarily consists of crustaceans and fish which are caught just underneath the surface of the water. The drive are brief and rarely take longer than one minute.
