Chapter 8 Across the PlateauOn November 21st，the Norwegians killed thirty dogs."They were happy，"Amundsen said."And now tney're going to die quickly.""We need three sledges，and eighteen dogs，to go to the Pole."When the dogs were dead，the other dogs ate them.The men ate them，too.They were good friends，Bjaaland wrote in his diary.And now they are good food.Two days later，the dogs were fst.Then，in a snowstorm，they began the journey again.After the snowstorm，there was fog，and in the fog，they got lost on an ice river with hundreds of big holes in it.They could see nothing，and it was very dangerous.In four days they moved nine kilometres.But the ice is beautiful，Bjaaland wrote.Blue and green and white.This is a wonderful place ―but I don't want to stay a long time.After the ice，there were strong winds and bad snowstorms.They could see nothing in front of them.
