And so passes the glory of the world. Its been quite a journey, but after 2,600 nautical miles, the first leg of the expedition is over. The boat is packed, the samples on dry ice, the crew is on planes to their respective destinations. Indigo will enjoy a well deserved rest under the sunny skies of Port Louis (Mauritius) until the start of leg 2 in a couple of months that will see us pass through Chagos Archipelago, then on up to the Maldives.
This has been a 'landmark' sampling expedition that would have never happened without the guinea pig crew. Joe, Martin, Josh and of course my wife Rachelle ... thank you all.
