On the road again (and t-shirt competition)

Indigo is almost ready for another ocean passage! The new crew arrived to Mauritius in the last few days and the boat is getting loaded with provisions and scientific equipment. For this leg we have a real multinational crew composed of: Federico (Italian), Rachelle (USA), Ron (USA), Jacob (Denmark), Mike (Denmark), Joe (Australia), Jasna (Australia), Gayle (Ireland).
While getting ready in Port Louis, we were interviewed by the Mauritian local news, met with University representatives, had an interview with business week and Indigo starred in a Bollywood movie.  Yes, you read correctly: a Bollywood movie crew asked us if they could shoot a scene while motoring around the harbour and dancing on deck. We couldn't pass the opportunity to see some funky dance moves so we accepted. And what a show it was. 
The only issue is that everything happened so fast and the film crew was so efficient that we forgot to ask the title of the movie: so if you are a Bollywood fan and come across a dance scene shot on the bow of Indigo V, contact us and you will receive an expedition t-shirt as a prize!
Stay tuned for more news from the high seas.
