It’s our first night on Mars! We dressed for the occasion in our matching polo shirts (thanks to Derek). Also thanks to Derek we’ll be wearing some great sneakers from Sketchers. Here's a photo of us on a pit stop:
We had technical difficulties leaving and ended up being late, but that’s okay. We spoke with Crew 119 and got acquainted with the hab. When they left we and made dinner – we had no idea what we were doing but it turned out fine! We ate “Western Tamale Pie” with rice, chicken, peppers, and extra seasoning. We thought it’d be like chili (it wasn’t).
We plan to make a schedule of dinner cooks, which would hopefully fit well with the rest of the day’s activities (e.g. if you are on an afternoon EVA, you’re not making dinner). Haven’t decided what to have for Christmas dinner, but that’s a ways a way.
I absolutely love my camera, but probably won’t be able to upload full resolution versions of the pictures until after returning to Earth.
