We left Oslo this morning and arrived in Longyearbyen to about -15, though windchill makes it feel a lot colder. Dirk and Keith were at the airport to meet and greet! Short drive into the hotel, converted from miners lodging. Longyearbyen is known for coal mining and some commercial fishing. It also holds the world’s seed repository. The seeds from the world’s plant life are stored here underground, safe from permafrost up on one of the mountains. Noah’s seed ark.
