Svalbard (so far)
we're here in svalbard! staying in longyearbyen. we're having a GREAT time so far! we did a saftety training course today. we had to learn all about polarbears and how to protect ourselves from them without hurting them unless really needed. we wactched while they fired all sorts of guns, it made us all jump! we also did water safety training which meant swimming in the arctic sea!! Because its a bit cold we had giant orange dry suits (like bubbles!) to keep us warm! they went all sucky inny on you!!! it was lush becasue it has been all beautiful and sunny all day so the water was all blue! we havnt managed to get a present yet for mr. rusty but we'll try tomorow!!
