Commander Report Day 07 RoMars2011

Log Book for January 21, 2011
Commander's Report
Virgiliu Pop Reporting

After watching 'Supernova' and keeping to praise Haritina for her 'scovergi' (Romanian tortillas), which apparently will enter the MDRS recipe book, we went to bed, and woke up - as usual - rather late. This is absolutely OK with the commander - as long as everybody does their job, he is totally happy!

We had breakfast - tortillas with salami - then Haritina finished writing-up her recycling proposal and sent it to the powers-that-be. The captain then left the base with Dragos and Haritina, on a long EVA, aimed at locating an appropriate place for building a sundial. Romanians have a multi-millenary sundial tradition - the one built by our ancestors the Dacians is still standing in Sarmizegetusa.

We left the hab on good hands - Iulia (NOT Lulia!, her name begins with I, and translates as July) and Betty tended to their science samples, while DG came with a team and performed extensive hab repairs with no EVA suit!

Back to the captain and his away team - we located a suitable sundial spot not far from the hab and started to build it - we hope to finish it tomorrow. Then back at the hab, where we'll soon enjoy some kung-fu chicken.

Jerry has not been seen today, and we hope that Planet Mars won't be known as Planet Mouse. On a personal note, the commander saw the mouse problem coming - when packing his bags for the MDRS, his cat sneaked in and was, unfortunately, chased away.
