Every Day in February - Days 1 and 2

I joined the Facebook Group called Every Day in February and we are visiting a different country every day. 
 As always I am running behind, but I'm enjoying seeing all the wonderful drawings and learning so many facts about each of the countries we are visiting.
Time to plan my sketches for Days 3 and 4!

Days 1 and 2

EDiF Group C - Day 1 Antartica

I got waylaid at the beginning of my tour when I was invited to join a scientific team in the deep ocean off Antartica to watch a brinicle form. It took a while for the conditions to be right but it was well worth the wait to see it being formed right before our eyes. "A brinicle (brine icicle, also known as ice stalactite) forms beneath sea ice when a flow of extremely cold, saline water is introduced to an area of ocean water, being the undersea equivalent of a hollow stalactite or icicle. When it touches the sea bottom, it spreads across the bottom freezing everything in its path."

EDiF Group C - Day 2 - Armenia

After so many days underwater in the Antarctic I decided I need some green and open space so I went to visit the waterfalls of Armenia.
