"Another fruitful day found us with a lot of cores and nice exciting results. Little things that make us laugh keep happening, like this morning a core literally splashed me in the face with deep-sea mud. Fortunately, you won’t see any pictures of that, because no-one thought of bringing a camera when they came with water and paper to help me clean my eyes. A few minutes later Adriano decided to remove Andrey’s arm hair by using black tape…. no pictures of that either! Too bad these things happen so fast you can’t capture them. Anyway, as long as the sun is shining and we can sunbathe for a few minutes after lunch we’re happy..."


Back to school… taking a safety test to make sure everyone knows what do in case of emergency

While waiting for the core to come
up, the other team watch movies

Some of us spend our spare time sunbathing

to avoid the paparazzi!
