Heading back over the Drake Lake

Today was the first of two sea days crossing the Drake passage. We are once again very lucky with the weather and the Drake Passage still looks like a lake, just as it did on our way down.
During the day it has been several different lectures. The Belgica expedition to Antarctica and wildlife’s adaption to deep diving and the cold environment in the Antarctic was the subject on some of them. Four groups got to visit the bridge and say hallo to the captain. The rest will get their chance tomorrow.  
Almost everybody is hoping for a smooth sea day tomorrow as well.

The pictures are some flashbacks from the journey we have been to.
