... that today. De 3e tuktuk pakt het net iets anders aan dan de rest en hij heeft succes. Hij is mooi gekleed, lacht vriendelijk en legt uit wat hij kan doen voor ons. Hij biedt ons een toer aan langs de belangrijkste plekjes in Colombo voor 10$ per uur.

The humid air ensures that we are all drenched in sweat 24/7 but the warmth is more comforting than nauseating. I find myself enjoying being warmed up, inside out, all the way to the bones - getting rid of the European cold and out of the unreliable changeable weather back home. ...

... was languish in a lounger. This morning we sailed due east of the Maldives at a steady speed of 22 knots. We heard from a passenger, who had a balcony, that she saw the arrival at 1am of the three ex special forces personnel who were to help secure the ship from pirates. They had arrived by a very noisy fast launch and were clothed completely in black. They carried on board the ship some large crates. This all sounds very exciting or worrying. I can't make up ...
