On our way south

 This is our first and only pure sea day on our way to the Antarctic.  We are really lucky with the weather, partly cloudy and a calm sea.


During the day it was several lectures and time to vacuum clean outdoor clothes and backpacks for organic material we don’t want to bring to Antarctic. Due to almost no wind we have seen very little birdlife today, maybe we will see more when we cross the convergence.

 Tomorrow after lunch we have scheduled our first landing at the Chinese research station Great Wall.
