Day three. You probably guessed the reason for gap between now and my last log. Not that the sea has been totally unforgiving, in fact it has been rather calm. Still, I felt much more comfortable sleeping most of the day while my body gets used to this motion. I haven’t missed a meal yet (I am not a sissy…) but I have noticed three people officially sea sick. So far it looks like a repeat of last year. I think I interrogated everyone on board and I am the only one on his way to Dome C. The rest of the passengers are mainly Dumont D’Urville (DDU) winter-overs and the usual bunch of scientist working on board. The only improvement this time is the renewed collection of DVD, about 30 of them. I have no doubts that we’ll go through them all by the time we arrive (We have seen about twelve so far). I guess there isn’t much to say yet. Obviously, there will be much more to say once at DDU.
