Hello from Tunis (Tunisia Africa)
Well almost hello from Africa, at 7.00am we had notice over the ship intercom advising that we had been notified by the Holland Amercia Line that due to the current circumstances in northern Africa, the ship would not be docking so we will ...
... about eight calls. The best of the views was a donkey pulling a load of carrots to market.
We had to pass through several small hamlets plus Nabeul [where we turned left/north] and Kelibia. It was a constant weaving, one free lane somehow squeezing out a second lane.
