Tuesday March 19th was a day to remember. There were ups and there were downs, there were byes and new faces. Lots happened this March 19th. The morning started off not so normal at 4 am we lost the first batch of our dear stem crew, after that at colours we said bye to a few more and this happened throughout the day. Many hugs and tears were shared. We had half classes all day today so school ended at a brisk 12 something.  Not so normal you see. After that it was perfect time for a deep ship clean, so we did that too. Got in all the corners and of course scrubbed the floors. You can call us pros as we finished in 1hour and 30 mins. Probably a new record. With some time to spare before the presentation on sustainable tourism people left the boat for a well deserved ice cream, coffee or just fresh area. Back on the boat at 4 pm we had a presentation on sustainable tourism in the Azores. Really interesting stuff. After that we had shore leave till 10:30 pm. Once back on the ship people snacked, did store halls and slept to prep for March 20th.
