Today was officially our 1st day of training on DeskLogic, the software that we will be using to log cores. Thomas gave us all enough confidence to drive this "sportscar" without a driver's license!!! :->
The scenery around the ship is actually more varied than one would think ... today we saw a bunch of whales in the distance ... these large mammals however occupy only one pixel of this picture!
Today, I wore my South African rugby t-shirt (Springbok). There is no better way to find out who is from South Africa on the ship. I counted three of them and they were all very happy to see the colors of their country!!! Cheers for the Springboks!!!
