Jennifer is back in Longyearbyen

Jennifer is back in Longyearbyen, the main settlement in Svalbard. Here we got our mainsail repaired (from the severe gale on the sail from Norway). We have been in Barentsburg, a small Russian coalmining settlement and Pyramiden (see photo), an abandon Russian coalmining settlement and now a ghost town, both with Lenin statues. Also glaciers, among them the huge Nordenskjöld glacier, 1 kilometer wide and 2, 5 kilometer deep. Now provisioning here, visit the North Pole museum and then exploring the south of Svalbard before sailing back to Norway. ETA Tromsö Aug 1.
