¿Que se cuece en medio del Atlantico?

¡Pues la verdad es que se cuece de todo! Hoy os voy a contar qué comemos en el barco y como funciona nuestro horario para las comidas. El JOIDES Resolution es casi como un hotel, nos preparan las habitaciones y nos limpian las instalaciones todos los días. También tenemos servicio de lavandería a diario. Para haceros una idea, me yo me he traído ropa para una semana y media y con ropa para 3 días me habría sobrado.

Breakfast?! Lunch?!... maybe Brunch!!!

In a previous entry< you realized that we have an excellent team of cooks preparing all the meals for us. Breakfast is served between 5 and 7 AM, lunch between 11 and 1 PM, and dinner between 5 and 7 PM.

A working holiday

One of the benefits of living on the JR is that all our meals are prepared for us! Imagine not having to come home from a hard days work and cook a meal…for two months! It is bliss!

And they are not ordinary meals that you get in cafeterias or large institutions either. We are in heaven with all the delicious, specially prepared meals. This plate of salmon carpaccio says it all!

Flour for dozens of cookies


How did the rat get on board you might ask?

Victoria Rat is the type of animal that follows her nose to food.   She lived in the port of Victoria, Canada where there are lots of ships and ships are full of food for the many people who work on them.  A floating banquet! 


One week to go

It's only a week now before I have to leave and head off towards Hong Kong for our port call to join the JOIDES Resolution and to start our work that will last through to almost the beginning of April.

The best room on the ship

You can argue about this--perhaps the Core Lab, the Chem Lab, the Gym, one's own cabin--but I think the best room on board is the Mess Hall or Galley. The place we enjoy all our meals and cookie breaks together.

Weekend Specials

It's the weekend! That means everything proceeds as normal on board, except on-shore colleagues don't read their emails, we don't have video conferences with schools, and we have Very Special Food.

Video Diary #2

My next Video diary is posted! Take a peek at the ship's deck, galley, and gym. 

What shall we eat? - Keep Cool! (bilingual)


Nearly everybody going on board of the JOIDES Resolution for the first time may have asked the question: "What shall we eat in this 8 weeks?" to himself or to others, when preparing to sail. Because of the ambitious expedition goals, the ship is designed to remain 8 weeks on sea, without visiting any port.
