Sol Summary – July 31st
Written by Jon Clarke
Today really was a rest day. This was just as well because, as predicted, the weather took a turn for the worse. The wind blew strongly overnight, it snowed lightly this morning (but did not settle) and then rained this afternoon.
Hab-bound, people read, caught up with notes, write emails to family and friends, edited images and videos, worked on their own research projects, napped, and chatted. Yusuke is cooking up a storm in the galley. It was rice with a number of different sauces containing lentils, beans, tomatoes, chocolate, coffee, maple syrup, honey, coconut milk, milk powder, soy sauce, raisins and many different spices. These are just a few of the ingredients.
We are hoping for better weather tomorrow, but the forecast is not good. We have plans for all contingencies.
