Amaya update plus cool solar powered boat

Hi Everybody,
This is Yoko.  I just wanted to let you all know that Amaya arrived back home yesterday.  In fact she is sitting right beside me as I write this.

Here is a photo of us :)  I'm the one wearing the skirt.

Here's an old photo of us wearing matching outfits back when we were about 8 or 9, I think. Amaya is whispering something in my ear. Amaya did have blue shoes like mine but the velcro ripped on her pair.
That's it for now.

Yoko :)

p.s. none of us went along but our guardian went down to the waterfront on tuesday (the 16th) to see the largest solar powered ship in the world while it was docked in Halifax.

It's a trimaran which means it has a single hull and 2 outriggers.  The flat part on top is covered with solar panels.

It is a research vessel and says University of Geneva on the hull (it says it in French: Universite de Geneve)



A side view photo of the gangplank.


And finally a view from the back.  You can see one of the crew members inside if you look closely.
