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.
