32 days without Internet. It’s gonna be horrible.
I’m missing you so much today…
I can’t sleep as much as I used to. It’s part of growing older i guess. But then I don’t have as much physical work as the captain either.
Mercifully they have sent nice multi-gym on this ship. So there’ll be time to exercise during the long voyage. Wonder if I’ll get opportunity to buy some whey protein at the last port.
We go in tonight. The river pilotage will eat up the whole night.
Now I know why everyone in China seems to have iPhone- not even the Google playstore works here.
We passed our first Port State Control inspection without any deficiency/observation/detention.
That’s a relief for the next two Chinese ports.
I guess PSC shouldn’t visit us in Singapore when we’re refuelling.
It seems when he’s happy he’s for others,
when he’s sad he’s handed back to me.
He flew back last night. I’m not even in the country and I feel as if I saw him off. I so wish to hug him tight and give him a dry kiss on his lips.
Ah Sleep! I miss you….
… then they talk about hours of rest at sea.
“I’m not returning.” He sent those words with such finality that it sounds like the end of an era.
He says the doctor was a dick.
He’s never returning to the country as permanent base.
