The advance team is growing!

Mariam arrived in Longyearbyen from Saudi Arabia today. It was a relief to see her safely off the bus from the airport alongside three big bags of supplies for the team rations (Thank you Panda Supermarket!). So that makes six out of 11 team members.

BUT we are already a much larger team than that! The POWER team are Audrey and Jessica; the documentary team of three are here too - and soon there will be more. Slowly, slowly we are taking over this town!

As for the advance team, who have now been here five days, we practically feel like locals!

Looking forward to more arrivals in the coming days.
