Pirates!!!

We were at the cafe on opening night (which went amazingly well...so many people and all different kinds of people adn everyone seemed to have a ton of fun...) and Kristin comes up and suggests that Charlie and I take a ride down to the pier...So we do, and there is the most beautiful boat ever...This fanrtastic girl Terezie showed us all around. It was built by the capitain, Rudolph, who has sailed for 40 years, gone to Antartica, all over the world several times and is now headed back to Iceland with a crew of Chezchs and Poles and a Swedish doctor. We invited them up for coffee at the cafe and ended up having dinner with them the next night and watching movies from Rudolph's travels tonight. They are amazing, kind people who are doing things that blow my mind...
Here is the boat, Victoria. It is a replica of Magellen's ship. 14 people live on her at present and when we came by the first time, they were hand planing a spinnaker boom...these people are not playing around...




Tonight...well, technically this morning, I start my journey to the Fjords and then on to see Camilla...I will be back the 15th of May, but hopefully I can update from Camilla's.
