I had Christmas Dinner with the Maintenance Manager and Process Engineering Supervisor tonight in dome 3 canteen. Not many of the locals here celebrate Christmas but they do like holidays because it means people getting together and having a special meal. So they decorate, and have a nice spread on the holidays here – there was shrimp and lobster, ham and turkey, and some good cheeses. I usually eat my dinner in my room at night but it was a pleasure to socialize a bit, particularly on Christmas. But now it’s back to my room, as tomorrow is another work day. I worked most of the day on Christmas – facilitated a meeting, did some follow-up, wrote the meeting notes. Just another day in Tengiz.
