leaving Svalbard...sad but true ;0)

I can see it's really long time since i have written on my blog! shame on me and all of you that follow me!

after the Excursion to Reindalen we went on a two day field work trip with scooters to Kapp Linne and Isfjord radio. the weather was great and so was the trip, even though we had to do quite some work. Field work is great so it doesn't do that much!
when i came back from kapp Linne anna went with our friend Lilja and one of here friends to a cottage at Skansebukta in Billefjorden, stayed one night, saw a polar bear and went to the abbandonned settlement of Pyramiden (russian) and back. in the mean time i was running the Svalbard ski marathon (42 km), it was quite hard but a nice trip...

then the fun with excursions was over and more lectures in school while anna was doing here research interviews all over town!

we had to make a major report over all our field work and present it on monday. this left us with one day for reading to the exam which we had on wednesday, but i think it went ok.

today i sat in a meeting with the logistics people at UNIS and after saying bye to some friends at Kroa over pizza and beer, Anna and me are no ready to jump on the 0440 plane to Oslo and spend the weekend there.

the weather and snow and ice conditions have never been so good ever in my past years here, so it has all been great.

just need to show Anna more of Svalbard.

by the way this was my UNIS course number 10...
