this. I loved reading about the story. The way that he christened the boat with a chunk of ice, instead of wine was particularly interesting.
"It is not my intention to dishonour the glorious grape, but already now you shall get the taste of your real environment. For the ice you have been built, and in the ice you shall stay most of your life, and in the ice you shall solve your tasks."
