    ... an older man, who comes to the ship annually, when it is in dry dock. His hobby is writing, so we have asked his support in writing some wonderful stories about this dry dock period.

    That is only one of the things I am doing at the moment. I am trying to get a hang of this job, a job that cannot be summarized in some bullet points in a vacancy advertisement. On-the-job training. The protocol side of the job is quite ...

    ... The Sharks are the local players. We met a man and his wife at the game who explained everything there is to know about Rugby to us, which was incredibly helpful since we were all terribly confused. The Sharks ended up winning! Olay! (Yes, that's a thing at Rugby games here).

    Yesterday we had a free day to recover before moving into our homestays last night. I spent the day on the beach, just relaxing. Then it came time for the event we have all been waiting ...
