We, the Luther students of Decorah, Iowa arrived on this the ninth day of January, on the island of St. Thomas. We are all very happy that it is about 100 degrees warmer here than it was in Decorah. We boarded the Roseway and were taken on a tour of the ship. After our initial orientation we got a chance for a quick swim in the ocean, under a double rainbow to watch the sun set behind the island. Everyone enjoyed a delicious meal together and we are all looking forward to setting sail tomorrow.
