There's a rainbow over the harbour this morning, I wonder if that means rain or sunshine will prevail. Before we leave we update the blogs and book a hotel in the airport in Doha for our stopover when we return from Namibia. We should get to the port today, so possibly sail tonight. The scenery today is lovely, the hills wirh the mountains beyond have a look of the Lake District. There are a lot of the wetland areas with masses of storks feeding. Doris, or rather ...
We left the ship late and spent some time using the Port's free wifi. We were heading to the bus stop to take a bus into town when we ran into an enterprising taxi driver.
