All of us on the ship are thinking about the Philippines in the wake Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda in the Philippines) and the utter devastation it caused a week ago. This event has of course affected our friends and fellow crew members on the Fram who call the Philippines their home. We have heard from Captain Andreassen that none of us has been been directly affected by the storm other than perhaps by local damage to homes.
We all feel that the two sea days between South Georgia and Antarctica that we have experienced could be best “blogged” by gathering and photographing as many of the crew as possible as a remembrance to what has happened so far away from here, yet so close. Here they are in all their glory!!!
Some of our galley crew!
Our bosun, deck hands and boat drivers!
Some of our engine room crew!
Our deck 7 barman!
And all the crew with a wish for the Philippines!
