December 9, 1995
Provisioning fiasco continues. Kevin Lena & I met with German at his office in his family home. Served coffee, freshly squeezed OJ, sweets and samples of anything we have questions about. What is Dulce de Leche? How do you serve it? Ordering is a language lesson as well as an exercise in diplomacy.
Leave feeling confident my food order will be filled somehow, someway. Aware I am going to be faced with some creative challenges over the next there months.
Back to ship.
Launch after phone call to M&D, unable to reach P.
