Location: Cairns, Australia

The first day of the program has arrived, and we are happy to say that everyone made it here safely and with all of their luggage! After unpacking bags and getting bunks sorted, most people spent the afternoon hanging out on the deck of Argo getting to know their new crew-mates, while a few explored Cairns or at least the nearby gelateria. After a cookout dinner in the public park near the marina, we went through introductions, showers, and an early night to bed to be ready for our first full day of the program tomorrow.
