April 2007 - Horseshoe Crab Team in Boston

April 2007. Finally the Horseshoe crab research squad has boarded the HDMS Vædderen. All others on the expedition have been enjoying the warm weather of the Virgin Islands. Now they have come to Boston on the Galathea Expedion to meet us and a freezing cold weather. Even though the weather is cold, the research is carried out in an warm an welcoming atmosphere. The fact that there is an alcohol ban on the ship turns out to be no problem at all because there is a soft-ice machine providing free ice-cream for all of us.
