Last night the Maud Returns Home team arranged for a talk on Amundsen, Maud and our project plans in the community hall for 200 people. Afterwards we served Arctic char chowder and Banik, some sort of local bread. We had good help from local people cooking and baking and everybody seem to enjoy themselves and we can really say the same thing on our behalf.
The people of Cambridge Bay are open minded and they always have a smile to share.
The weather has turned colder the last days and we have had snow in the air, reminding us about the reality of life up here in the arctic.
On the pracical side we are in good progress and we are busy building a memorial carn and also clearing the area around Maud, to have more easy access next year for strapping Maud before the lifting operation.
The Norwegian Documentary Film team is busy collecting material and yesterday a team from CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) arrived and they will follow us during our last week here in Cambridge Bay.

A good crowd came to listen and look at old and new Maud pictures and film cuts and enjoyed the Fish soup on local Actic char (røye) offered by the Maud Project Group. Thanks again to Tandberg Eiendom.
