Where I stayed
Bizarre moment. Trying to fold washing while the ship is going up and down quite significantly. Rough seas tonight. My centre of gravity is being challenged.
Tomorrow is on the horizon though and the ship stops in port for 3hrs. Yay! Walking and exploring day.
Thinking of all of you back home with yet another shocking hot day
. I have the Melbourne Bureau of Meteorology saved as a favourite (I always use it at home because I never watch the news). Each day I check the Melbourne temperature and compare it to here, and I'm sorry to say that I'm glad I'm here. Give me -20°C over +40°C because all I have to do is add on more layers of clothing, whereas hot is just damn hot. Almost makes me want to relocate to the northern hemisphere :) The tour guide said yesterday that they are noticing Global Warming here. He said that this was a mild winter with not a lot of snow & last summer they had a heatwave day of 28°C. You can imagine his face when another Aussie on the tour mentioned the 40+ but then again we are talking about Arctic conditions & I can imagine 28 would be extreme.
Finally finished drying at 12.30am. Good night
Another exciting late night.....NOT! 11.30pm and I'm doing domestic duties, my washing. But I'd rather do it now then waste my day time. But to make matters worse, wireless internet doesn't work in the laundry room. I'm bored out of my mind, hence, taking stupid photos of myself. I'm grateful though that the ship has a laundry room because it's way better than washing clothes by hand which I have been doing.
