At sea

The weather picks up a little on the Denmark Strait, and we all start to develop our sea legs. Although there is no land in sight, we have a full day of lectures from morning to dinner time, covering a huge variety of topics from seals, Greenlands politics, birds, History, the Inuit, Geology and - very useful - Digital Photography. Those who prefer to have their nose in the wind enjoy the fresh gale on deck and the beautiful clouds. In the evening everybody catches a glimpse behind the scene, as our Chef and the Hotel Manager volunteer to be guests in a little "talk show" in the Observation Lounge. Now everybody gets to sleep in anticipation of the first sighting of ice tomorrow!
