Food at Ny-Ålesund research station

7 July 2021

 
Dinner is at weird times at Ny-Ålesund: 16:30, except on Saturday where it is at 18:30. Food is an important aspect of life here because many scientists work in the field for long hours in the cold and sometimes under extreme conditions. Calories intake is then important to sustain hard and long working days. Fresh vegetables and fruits became depleted and were replaced by frozen vegetables and dried plums. Last night a resupply ship docked at the harbour. It has been quickly unloaded this morning. There was food supplies among the containers delivered. So at lunch it was fresh vegies and fruits galore! Everyone appreciated eating bananas and oranges.
