Simon Winchester Plays with Penguins

Simon Winchester, regular Condé Nast Traveler contributor and author of such books as Krakatoa, The Professor and the Madman, and his latest, The Man Who Loved China, is en route to Cape Town aboard the Corinthian II, where he's giving lectures on the Falklands War and the remaining colonies of Great Britain, among other subjects. He sent in these snapshots from South Georgia Island to make us jealous.
