Drake Passage

Today Neptune showed his grace to the FRAM by sending us a nice gale, with waves up to 10m high! However, as the wind came full ahead, the FRAM hardly rolled, and thus most of us were ok. We continued with our lecture program and bridge visits, and in the evening, Captain Steinar Hansen hosted the traditional Captain's Dinner. As a surprise to our Chinese guests, he also delivered his welcome address in Chinese, so: kanpei (skål)!
