renovated home

Many years, the Netherlands Arctic Station was housed in London II, the oldest but most original of the four London houses. Traditionally, in the coal mining days, these houses were the homes for families with small children.

The house has been renovated by skillfull carpenters trained in the renovation of protected cultural heritage. One of them, Martin Herrmann, has sent me these pictures today. He wrote: "Had a small inspection today in Ny-Ålesund. London2 has become so beautiful, enjoy it!"

I cannot wait. I will arrive on 15 June 2015 for a new field season. I am looking forward to meeting old friends.
