Santa Cruz de la Palma, Spain

Stage Manager’s Log M.S. Prinsendam Wednesday, May 31, 2006 Santa Cruz de la Palma, Spain This morning was the first payday.

After breakfast as usual I was off to the first lecture...

Atlantic Crossing Day 5

Stage Manager’s Log Ms. Prinsendam Saturday, May 27, 2006 Atlantic Crossing Day 5 This morning I had the chance to sleep in a little, and then head up for breakfast just before the kitchen closed. I ate with Stephen from the cast, and Jen, the head of children’s programming. Her title is probably something like Youth activity coordinator. This morning’s lecture was about diamonds and how to pick them and what differences are apparent to...
