Ahmad Begg aka Miami (Halley V and VI, 4 seasons) - Cape Town, South Africa I worked for Morrison construction company on Halley 6. I was fortunate of being one of the guys to have built Halley 6. I was down in the Antarctic for 4 seasons. This was one of the best life experiences. The 4 years that I been going down there I got to meet so many different nationalities. The place itself is mind blowing. To think that you part of such a historic project and you were chosen out of hundreds of applicants. The travelling over there is an experience on its own. I had the honour and the privilege to voyage with the Earnest Shackleton. The whole project was mind blowing
