The crew was awakened this morning by the Muppets “Ma Na Ma Nah”, which was heard in various humming throughout the day. Breakfast was some lovely cinnamon rolls and fruit. We rallied after our first hasty boat appreciation to head out to Barb’s lab. At Barb’s we learned about invertebrate and had some good times with the inhabitants of her peeting tanks. Getting high 5’d by a conch was pretty cool. We piled back into our taxi and headed back to town, which unfortunately was mostly closed up because it was Sunday. There was a cool brick building to look at, and a few ventured to eat the fried swordfish – which I hear was pretty good. We came back stocked up with new provisions picked up by Beaker and OCE class. Dinner was great and then we had MTE class. MTE is my favourite always accompanied by Boomers stories – usually about Poncho (who unfortunately we wont get to meet this trip). I’m looking forward to tomorrow.
