Hello there all you land folk and loved ones. 

This is Lauren, the steward, here. 

I've been feeding all of your wonderful people on this trip so far, but today was a very special day for everyone onboard, but for me in particular.  The whole staff decided to take over my job for the day and each of them chose their own dish and meal to make for us, so we had 13 different people cooking for us today.  And what a day it was!  Beignets and brownies, toasties and tagines, cappuccinos and date bars!  No one went hungry today.  No one goes hungry any day actually. 

"I don't know what I'm eating but I love it" is probably my favorite thing to hear someone say.  I am stuffed with delicious food cooked by the very capable humans in our small community, and I am grateful for that.

Peace and chicken grease,

- Lauren

Just wanted to shout out to my friend Beth Martin to let her know that I think she is amazing and you are all so lucky to be getting to know her! Let her know I’ve been following all these post and she seems to be in good hands with an incredible group of people!! Looks like an unforgettable adventure! Someone give her a big hug from me and tell her I miss her!!!
