ISA Training Day 20: Goodbye, Slavyanka!

 October 18, 2018. It's time to say goodbye to Slavyanka! Our journey begins.

I don't know the reason, but it turns out that our vessel need to be pulled by small ship first.

Here's the picture of small ship that pulled our vessel. (Photo by Dolo)

Here are some pictures during our departure:

See you, RV Gelendzhik! (Photo by Dolo)

Bia and Amina said goodbye to Slavyanka!

 

That's it for today. Thank you, guys!

ISA Training Day 19: Moving to RV Yuzhmorgeologiya

It was October 17, 2018. If you read my previous blog posts, during our stay in Slavyanka, we stayed at our cabins in RV Gelendzhik. We were scheduled to use RV Gelendzhik (?) as our vessel to do our practical part of our ISA training. JSC Yuzhmorgeologiya, the company, also have other RV, called RV Yuzhmorgeologiya, that has departed on October 12. I remember that RV Yuzhmorgeologiya was returned to the port because of some technical problems 2 days later. 

This is RV Gelendzhik captured by Kira from RV Yuzhmorgeologiya that returned 2 days after its departure.

Because the problems has already been solved, the RV Yuzhmorgeologiya were scheduled on the next day to depart. Because we've been in Slavyanka for almost a week and RV Gelendzhik will be departed in the next week, the plan changed. We're moved to RV Yuzhmorgeologiya so we don't have to wait any longer. 

The thing is, I've already unpacked my things, like all of the things. My suitcase has been emptied. In addition, We've been to Limonchik, one of the biggest department store in town, and I bought a lot of Indomie cup. So, I need some extra time to pack everything.

It's good that Indomie is available here. Really helped a lot during the cruise. (Source: here)

The two RVs then located next to each other and the crews made a bridge between the two. After say goodbye to everyone from RV Gelendzhik, we cross the bridge. Someone from RV Yuzhmorgeologiya greeted us and showed us which cabins we will stay. Our cabin (me and Jose) is not that different from the one in RV Gelendzhik. But check out the cabins for the ladies (Isuri & Amina and Bia & Dolo):

It even has the desk for work (photo by Dolo).

Some toilet and bath tub inside (photo by Dolo)

 It's quite an upgrade from this cabin at RV Gelendzhik:

The cabin from RV Gelendzhik

I don't envy or complaint or anything. Because we spent most of the time at Trainee's Room anyway (that's a story for another day). We spent many times hang out at their cabin too. 

Some honorable mention is me and Jose met Vladimir and Sasha at Scientist Room. It was because we wanted to take hot water at the dining room (like we always did at RV Gelendzhik), but we got nothing there. We were told to make a hot water with water boiler at scientist room. In the scientist room, we met Vladimir (the chief of scientist) and Sasha (the scientist). We talked about our theoretical part training in Saint Petersburg. Also I knew from this meeting that Sasha is a big fan of FC Zenit after we told our visit to the stadium.

So, that's it for today. See you tomorrow.

ISA Training Day 18: Enjoying Cappuccino and Cake at Point Cafe, New Friend at Vessel New Gym, and First Time Playing Uno

It's been around 1 year and a half since my last post about this post series. I've been busy with my thesis so I don't have time to just update this blog. Now it's 3 days after the Eid and I think it's a perfect time to update my blog.

Alright, so it was October 18, 2018, 3 days after we move to Slavyanka and we still didn't know when is the practical part of our training will start. So, we - me, Dolo, and Jose - decided to go outside just to feel the fresh air. I forget which route we walked that day. But we ended up at a cafe at the town center named Point Cafe.

Here's our picture at the cafe.

 

Here are some pictures I found from the internet:

The front view of the cafe. (Source: here)

The inside view of the cafe. (Source: here)

Some menu at the wall. (Source: Here)

We talked so many things some cakes in front of us. I forget most of them, but I remember we talked so many things about our countries. Anyway, the cafe is located near Monument to the Heroes Hassan if you read my previous post.

In the afternoon, we went to the gym at the vessel. We met some crews from the vessel, I think they are technician. Their English is not that fluent (neither do I), but somehow we just talked. They are quite friendly.

In the afternoon, Dolo and Jose introduced us the card game called 'uno'. Little thing we knew, this game stuck with us for the next 2-3 months because it's so addictive and enjoyable. But, that would be a story for another day. See you, guys!

ISA Training Day 17: Enjoying A Lovely Beach in Baklan Bay with Scientists from RV Gelendzhik

As usual, that Monday was a sunny day in Slavyanka. The scientist team from RV Gelendzhik invited us for a little vacation to one beach in the south of the city. Of course, we agreed without even thinking twice. The beach itself is not a part of the Slavyanskiy Gulf in the west where our vessel located. It's a part of Baklan Bay in the south. Bruysa Cape separates Slavyanskiy Gulf and Baklan Bay. There's a beautiful lighthouse in the cape, but we didn't have time to visit there.

We went there in the afternoon. It's around 4 km from the shipyard, but it would be taking so much time if we walk, so we decided to order two cars for us to get there. Although the road is not wide, has many turns, and with hilly contour, I gotta admit that the asphalt is really smooth. Around 10 minutes later, we arrived at the beach.

The beach is nice. The water is clear. The sand is soft. The wive is not big. The wind is not that strong. Ah, one more: it's really clean! And not many people at that time. So, it's perfect! I was going to swim there, but I didn't feel like to do it the second I touched the water. It was really cold. Alright, here are the pictures that we took there.

Look how clear the water is. You can see Antipenko and Sibiryakova Island in the distance. (Photo by me)

Bruysa Cape in the east. (Photo by me)

Hilly contour on the north. (Photo by me)

We walked to the west part until we met a river with a delta river in the middle. We took a selfie with that background. In addition, I took Bia's picture doing his pose in the middle of the delta with a burst mode. I gave you the best photo.

The delta river. (Photo by me)

Our selfie with the delta as the background. (Photo by me)

Patrick, is that you? (Photo by me)

Perfect pose, Bia! (Photo by me)

We ate at the small restaurant on the beachside. We were eating, talking, and dancing. I remember Irina talked to us that we'll be on the cruise for months and they are happy that we are coming with them. We just met for a couple of days, but we were like family already.

Our preparation before the meal. (Photo by Isuri)

Another photo on the table. (Photo by Isuri)

The dancing. Look how happy we were. (photo by me)


The decision was easily changing at that time. We didn't know if we will use RV Gelendzhik with them or will come with other scientists with RV Yuzhmorgeologiya that was still in repair. However, we didn't worry much about that. We knew that we have to live in the moment. And that's what we did at that time. No worry, just enjoy the moment.

What happened next? No. I'm not going to spoil our next story here. So, stay tuned for the next post and make sure to read the other stories from this post series on this link: http://www.abialghifari.com/2020/10/isa-training-story-complete-list.html. 

ISA Training Day 16: Safety Induction and Walk Around in Slavyanka

I woke up that morning after a quite good sleep. After breakfast, we went around the ship to do safety induction. We were introduced to important matters on board by the ship captain himself. One of them is the lifebuoy, which is a small cabin that functions as a temporary shelter when the ship is damaged. Inside there is navigation equipment, safety equipment such as buoys, and most importantly food. The food was simple enough, like biscuits, but enough to survive in it while waiting for help to arrive.

After that, we went outside the vessel. My first impression of Slavyanka was it's a quiet small town. For someone who lives in a populated city or country, Slavyanka is really quiet. The town is really clean though. We went to a traditional market. I think it's not a permanent market, I guess it's not every day that market open. I bought two t-shirts and some underwear. It's really cheap with good quality. 

We took a selfie before went to the town. (Photo by Bia)
This is the market. You can find so many clothes here. (Photo by Dolo)

Even meat. Look how clean the market is. (Photo by Bia)

Just 100 meters to the north, there's this monument called "Памятник героям Хасана" or "Monument to the Heroes Hassan". The monument is made as a memorial for 960 armies that killed during a conflict with Japanese troops that occupied that area in 1938.

Then we went to "Stals" Shopping center. The clothing you can find here is fancier but pricier. 

"Stals" Shopping Center.

There's no wifi on the vessel before departing, but we need to contact our family. So, after lunch, we decided to buy a new SIM card. For 500 rubles or USD 9 (2018 currency rate), we got an unlimited data plan. That's really cheap. The bad thing is you can't do tethering to your laptop or other devices. So, you're stuck with the internet on your phone. But still, 9 bucks is extremely cheap. From there, we went to the Limonchik supermarket. I was surprised that I found Indomie noodles in that supermarket. I bought all the stocks on the shelf. The cruise will be long, so I think it would be better for me if I have something familiar with me.

In the evening, we got news from Rubel that he just arrived in his country. We took a selfie and send it to him, Artyom, and Natalia on the WhatsApp group.

That's it for today. See you in the next post. Read the other stories from this post series on this link: http://www.abialghifari.com/2020/10/isa-training-story-complete-list.html




ISA Training Day 15: Vladivostok, Here We Come! Our First Encounter with RV Gelendzhik

Our flight arrived at Vladivostok International Airport at around 3 in the afternoon. It was a sunny day in Vladivostok. Don't be fooled by the clear sky though. It's still cool for me, around 10-15 Celcius degrees, I guessed.

After everything was okay, Tatyana ordered a car that will bring us to the place where the vessel for our practical training will depart. Then the car came. We were shocked that the car is really small. We have 7 people and many suitcases. It won't be enough. We told her that we need one more car, otherwise only for the suitcases alone, it won't fit. The solution was we still ordered only one car, but bigger. It is still too cramped for us, but we didn't have any choice. 

Look how many suitcases we had and how small the car was. (Photo by Bia)

Our destination is Slavyanka, a small town located 80 km southwest of Vladivostok. Yeah, it was only 80 km. However, the Amursky Zaliv (or Amur Bay) and the unsmooth morphology made us spending around 3 hours with 155 km of distance. Not that I'm complaining, but sitting 3 hours in a small space was not a good experience. The unfriendly driver and how rough he drove the car also made it worse.

At 6.30 we arrived at Slavyanka. The car stopped in front of ПАО " Славянский СРЗ" (Славянский судоремонтный завод). Yup. You got me! Of course, I found the name on google maps. I'm not gonna remember that long name. It's called PJSC "Slavyanskiy Shipyard" in English by the way, or simply we can call it Slavyanskiy Shipyard. It's the place where our vessel, RV Gelendzhik, was located. 

We waited for around 30 minutes for document checking reasons. After that, we're allowed to come in. We're still walking around 750 meters to see our ship. We're really tired at that time. Luckily some crews helped us to bring our suitcases to our cabins.

Thank you, guys! I'll save the story about Slavyanka for the next post. So, stay tuned.
