Right now we are all still at home, doing some last minute work to get ready for the cruise. Soon, we will all meet in the city of Manzanillo on the west coast of Mexico, where the research vessel Atlantis will await us. Starting on November 2, we will embark on an almost 1-month long research expedition to explore exotic life at the depth of the ocean. Being on a cruise is exciting, as it represents the culmination of a lot of hard work in preparing for it. We are all eagerly awaiting the start of the cruise. We will post about the cruise as often as we can, to keep you all informed. So, stay tuned for the next update from Manzanillo.
