This will be my last blog entry for a little while. I leave on HMS Deathtrap tonight. I better leave you all some particulars.
The name of the boat is the Moustapha Sy and the captain’s name is Mbaye Séne Faye. He was born on 08 Nov 1975 in Dieleumbane. I should be getting into Praia, the capital of Cape Verde, on Tuesday or Wednesday. The boat I’m on doesn’t have a radio and the guys onboard don’t speak Portuguese. I’ve asked my parents to ensure that the port authorities in Praia are informed of when we are coming in, otherwise they might turn us back.
Can somebody make sure that they do actually do that? Thanks. It’s rather important.
You have no idea how much I don’t want to do this.
Thank Zeus that May is over! What a rotten, frustrating, infuriating and expensive month it turned out to be.
June will be better, I’m sure of it.
