Goodbye Western hemisphere

Jul 17, 2008

Location: Tonga to Fiji
Author: Monica
As I am writing this, we are making our final approach into Suva on the island of Viti Levu in Fiji. We should arrive in the next few hours and will be anchoring in the early hours of the morning. We officially left the Western hemisphere around 11:30 this morning as we crossed over the Prime Meridian. A bunch of us gathered around the GPS display to watch the screen switch from West to East. After lunch, we had a guest speaker (Boomer) come to our Student Leadership Development course to talk about his personal leadership philosophy and style followed by an oceanography class. My watch team had the 6 to 9 shift this evening and got to witness another amazing sunset over the Pacific. I think everyone is looking forward to Fiji.
