Svalbard, day 2

170817 Today we could enjoy the breakfast at our place before we were picked up by a buss, for our extensive adventure by boat 11 hours (that lasted for 12 hours), ”Fjord-cruise towards the Nordenskiƶld glacier & Pyramiden”. We also got the unexpected chance to see polar bears, one mother and two cubs, it felt almost unreal although they where at safe distance only some people with long zoom lenses could reach them. I really dont know what to say about the abandoned russian mining station. It seemed that the people who lived there had quite a good living standard compared to what was common in Russia at that time period.
