Prominent visit and Raclet

8 kg of cheese, good wine and prominent guests made a pleasant evening
Raclet evening served by Henry and Casper.

The Norlandair 3 Twin Otter returned with a very prominent group of guests led by Frederik Paulsen. The weather was perfect for a tour and we used the afternoon presenting our camp and the activities.

We had an aperitif in the ice bar followed by racklet. Henry had brought 8 kg cheese from Bern and our guests had brought good red wine. The meal was excellent!
Thanks Rufli and Casper for the meal!.

After dinner we had one hour with science talks followed by a sauna visit. The sauna will close tomorrow so this was the last chance.
