Today is a sea day. We are sailing south in the Indian Ocean while hugging the coast of Sumatra Island, Indonesia. Even though in Singapore we were very close to the equator, at 1 degree north latitude, we did not cross it. The captain said he expects to cross the equator at about 5:00 am tomorrow.

We are still sailing east at 6 degrees north latitude. The closest land is the Indonesian island of Sumatra. We still have almost 2 days at sea until we dock.

There is an odd system of food payment here. You just don't pay. You write it all in a book and pay whenever you want. Quite trusting.
