On-board Diary: So called Day Off

That’s it, we have called today “day off”, but we all know that it doesn’t mean that we are not going to be working.

There are thousands of things to do, things that cannot be done when we are at sea or that are left for later: photographing under the microscope the samples collected during the week, putting some things in the post, changing the oil and filters of the motors and the generator, buying food and other stuff, doing the laundry, making an improvised basket to collect more samples or recording some images of the campaign manager explaining the project, among others are the tasks that keep us all busy during a good part of this “day off”.
