After work I went across to the green store and was assessed by John our Field Training Officer on the new climbing wall for rock climbing, belaying and abseiling. Stop laughing Sarah, and yes I did pass with flying colours. My arms were aching a bit afterwards though. For dinner we had veal schnitzels which were very nice and later a few of us had a meeting with John (FTO) about a trip we are planning for Wednesday to walk across a crevasse infested glacier to reach a Russian aircraft that crashed while taking off in 1960. It will be very exciting and very dangerous, but we will all be roped together and use all the techniques we have been training for in the past twelve months.
And now for something completely different
Lurking in the kitchen is this pesky dirty old rat that we just can't seem to catch. It was here when we arrived and is seen almost every day in a new location. I have been lucky enough or should I say quickly enough to snap a few photos of it before it has scampered away. Sooner or later we'll catch this dirty old rat and teach it a good lesson.........or will we?
Pesky dirty old rat !!
