Living on the Arctic Sunrise is like visiting another country. You get lost easily, you're unaware of the customs and you're trying to fit in with the "locals." The crewmembers, my family for the next month, are quite a cast of characters to say the least. It's a good thing the Statue of Liberty is inscribed,
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
