At Sea (II)

There is a linear correlation between sea conditions and the number of free seats in a lecture hall. Since the weather has improved today, the audience has increased considerably, listening to talks on Modern Greenland, Fridjof Nansen, Seals, Ice and Polar Bears. However, there are also many interesting ways of doing nothing on a ship: You can while away in the observation lounge, scanning the endless horizon, play a game of cards with a view in the Bistro, stand on deck and watch the Fulmars soar around the vessel, or take your time chatting at the dinner table. Quite many were to be seen in the Gym, compensating the excellent Buffet. In the evening we pass Cape Farvell in a distance. Tomorrow morning we will be in Greenland!
