Leaving Walvis Bay soon!

It is really happening. We are planning to leave Friday afternoon, the 28 th of January, and it feels like the first leg of our voyage is starting. We are packing and scrubbing and... Today a diesel mechanic is aboard and Johan and Joe are peeking over his shoulder to learn. The oil is changed an injectors are replaced and hopefully the white smoke from the starboard engine will disappear.

Marco started with home schooling yesterday, and so far so good! I am doing washing at a friends house in a lovely big machine for the last time in a long time...Sputnik here I come! But thank God for angels offering their washing machines and tumble dryers and blue cars....

Soon Marco and I will start to learn Portuguese on our shifts, to be sure we order the right size steak in Brazil!

PS. To all the angels who crossed our path on land, thank you...
