Dear Mum and Dad,
Even if the tundra is getting warmer it is still really cold. I am so glad I packed all of those warm clothes! We don't really do much apart from huddling in the tents, and at night we have to sleep all huddled up to try and stay warm.
When we took out all of the food, we found that it was frozen, so we defrost it by the battery heaters and the fire. It is quite scary to hear the polar bears outside at night, and the arctic foxes are a little bit scary, but nowhere near as much as the polar bears! It is really cool going to sleep at night listening to the snowy owls. I really want to see the reindeer!
It must be so warm back at home in New Zealand! When I come home, it won't feel as cold as it used to, because now I know what it's like to really be cold! It's so weird, because there are pretty much no plants here, and I am used to seeing plants wherever I go!
