Friday, 30th June: Waiting at Station Nord.

Spring has arrived in Station Nord, and the lemmings are out. We wait the whole day on news about airplane or helicopter. The day passes with ‘pre-sleep naps’ before and after meals. The internet cafe is open and is used intensely. In the evening we watch a movie in building 19: Aliens vs. Predators which begins with a tough expedition to Antarctica. Late in the day we learn that the Twin Otter has received permission to fly in Greenland. We hope to get our cargo out before Wednesday 5th July.

Weather at Station Nord: Fine with winds up to 12 m/s from S. There were clouds at Flade Isblink, and we believe that winds have been high on top of the ice cap.
