Monday, new week.
Today I’ve talked to Telenor Maritime Radio. They gave MMSI numbers to the rafts in five minutes! I was expecting this to be a long process, but I talked to a very friendly woman who registered the two rafts right away. Rahiti Tane, that I will be the skipper on, has MMSI 257 897 700 and callsignal LF5983. This link shows what the number consists of and what it can be used for.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maritime_Mobile_Service_Identity).
When I look for ships, I use an app called Marine Traffic. It will be possible to follow the rafts that way. We will also use the web page kontiki2.com to keep followers updated on the voyage.
I had an old neighbour for lunch and served my grandmother’s apple cake. As we are moving from Bergen to Kristiansand this week, I made a really large batch, and will serve cake to the «dugnad» crew who are helping out. Dugnad is a Norwegian word for helping others out. The people who help on projects like moving, garden work, construction get their rewards as food, drinks and IOUs. On Tuesday we will be packing all out things, on Wednesday we clean the apartment and on Thursday everything is put into the moving van. My uncle Ragnar and I are driving Bergen-Kristiansand on Friday.
xxx g sukker, 125 g smør:røres hvitt. Ha i x egg, 200g mel og x ts bakepulver. (dette er verdens beste deig). 1/2 Deigen presses ut i en smørsmurt form, man legger over 3-4 epler og drysser kanel og sukker over. Resten av deigen legges i et gitter over eplene. 200grader 30 minutter. Mormor og min søster Anne bruker selvsagt en rundt form og legger eplene i et pent mønster. Jeg laget den i en brødform i dag.
Boris, the doctor of Rahiti Tane sent me a picture today of the awesome medicine kits that the Russian doctors have put together. They are made following the guidelines of Radio Medico at Haukeland Universitetssykehus. We are in the best hands with Boris on board!
