Today I have been at sea for exactly one month! There’s currently a wall of ice outside my window haha.

We are finally doing the fuel operation. They flew up to the shelf (which is about 50m here) and stuck a giant hose down to the ship that is pumping fuel that will be used at Neumayer for the winter.
