We are going to make our first port call Friday and Saturday in Stanley, F.I. We are due there at 0900 Friday, and will be quite busy. Aside from the more obvious things (going to the local and having a beer! The NBP is an aggressively dry ship) we are going to collect fishes from tide pools and use small nets towed from an inflatable boat in very shallow water, several of us will be giving lectures to schoolchildren (I am to talk with a class of 10-11 year olds who, I am told, are "quite keen"), there are supposed to be some tours of the ship for local residents, including the Governor, and we all want the chance to get to see some of the island as tourists but that comes last on the to-do list. The Falklands have about 2500 residents, most of whom live on East Falkland, but 150 live on West Falkland; travel back and forth is by ferry or aircraft.
