from Longyearbyen, Svalbard

Snow begins to fall outside my window at Guesthouse 102, in the sleepy town of Longyearbyen on the island of Svalbard. It's 11 PM and is still as bright as midday. The sun won't set tonight and it will stay light as we are in the land of the midnight sun. Tomorrow we set sail on the tall ship,  Antigua with an exceptional group of visual artists and writers. Throw in many with science backgrounds, and we have an eclectic mix of individuals who will all be working on their art projects with the arctic as their backdrop.

For me, I will continue documenting the polar regions, wildlife, isolation and will make this up as I go along. This will be my only blog post from this region as internet connections are non existent while at sea.
