I took an air sample today and started working on some calculations for an article and the Dioxin meeting in Birmingham one week after I disembark. The rosette has been broken for the last two days. Veronique Lago, my roommate, is the rosette operator. She has been very busy trying to get it restarted. In fact, she has not been sleeping for more than 2 hours at any one time for the last 24 hours!! Amanda’s water samples were supposed to be taken at 10 pm. Due to the delays in repairing the rosette, we stayed up till 4:30 am to finish the sampling. The sun was finally here in the evening!! After so many gloomy days! Backed by an amazing hue of pink and golden twilight, it moved halfway down towards the horizon and came back up at around 2:30 am - the never-setting sun.
