Touring Tromso

We were off the ship by 10 and ready to go. Stein, Elinor, David and I spent the day in Tromso. It was a fun day. We toured the most Northern brewery, visited an aquarium, and toured the city. The Sars left in the afternoon to go back to 73 degrees North. We made it an early night because we all were traveling the next day. The past two weeks were an incredible adventure. Thanks ARMADA, the Census of Marine Life, Elinor, the University of Bergen, Rolf Pederson, and everyone on the GO Sars for a fabulous experience.
