We're tugged into every port. As our room is at the extreme aft of the ship, they're usually right below our veranda. I enjoy watching them work.

The fishing boats are always loaded.

Apparently these Arabic sails have been around for centuries.

Hundreds, maybe over a thousand people boarded this ferry. People streamed on and off, carrying boxes, suitcases, babies, strollers, bales, briefcases. With our telephoto lens we could see they were crowded. Now, when a ferry sinks and hundreds drown, I can visualize how it can happen.

Too many people. Period.

  1. Megan posted photos of those very similar ancient sail boats they saw in Madagascar. Glad you didn't have to take that ferry. Looks really scary. I immediately thought of the sinking ferries we hear so much about.
