SEA Currents: s251
S251 Weblog 02 February 2014
Ground Hog Day is very different in Tahiti, where the sun quickly moves high overhead and no shadows are visible. (Also, it is summer here, so both winter and the promise of spring have been left behind in North America.) The program “Sustainability in Polynesian Island Cultures and Ecosystems” (SPICE) has begun! Nineteen students from seventeen different American colleges arrived in Papeete at the crack of dawn yesterday, having traveled all day and all night from our campus on Cape Cod. It is a very amiable group and was quickly incorporated into the crew of the Robert C. Seamans.
