Crew 218 Sol Summary Report 25-DEC-2019

Sol: 03

Summary Title: ChristMars

Author’s name: Shefali Rana

Mission Status: A very merry ChrisMars

Sol Activity Summary: The crew woke up to a white Christmas this morning (and to the merry sound of Christmas carols).

After an (extended) attempt at the Mars puzzle and some hot chocolate, Cesare, Pat and Ben headed out to the tunnels to shovel snow while Jonathan and Shefali harvested some fresh greens for the much anticipated Christmas lunch. We were joined by our friendly neighborhood Martians for lunch. Spinach spaghetti, a (very calibrated and precise) salad and mashed potatoes. Yum. The star of the meal was undoubtedly the melt-in-your mouth cocounut macaroons courtesy Chef Pat. We were very excited to open the special Christmas presents (Thank you Cesare) and were heartened to receive Christmas wishes from around the world. Thank you class 9EW. Accompanied by the signature Cane Mintella hot chocolate (TM pending), we got cracking on the puzzle and finally finished it. The satisfaction. With out bellies and hearts full of joy, LuzMa, Pat and Ben relaxed for some Spongebob time and were joined by another furry little Martian friend. Cheers.
