We passed along a lake with a small temple on one side and a suspension bridge to a small island where under a large tree with low hanging branches were many couples hugging and kissing each other. Here again no matter where you go things are the same.
Our last stop was at a Catholic Church close to the port Saint Anthony Saint Anthony was prominently displayed in the church and there were a number of faithful present praying and burning candles and incense throughout the church. There was even a museum on a second floor, but we did not have time to visit. No Wi Fi was available today so we went to the port where a number of kiosks were set up selling everything from jewelry, watches, clothing, and many, many knickknacks.
Back aboard we prepared for the 1700 miles to the Seychelles while writing this the Captain said over the ship's loud speaker system that we will have a drill tomorrow to prepare us for a pirate attack. The crew put up razor wire along the promenade deck, sound devises to prevent an attack and high pressure hoses, along with the drill tomorrow to tell us what to do.
The drill said we had to leave our cabins and take cover behind steel compartments, but we were in the gym. One of the attendants closed all the shades but didn’t ask us to leave so we continued to work out and after 15 minutes the drill was over and everyone went about their daily chores.
The next day was another formal and we received another gift from the HAL, it was a pillow that contained a blanket with a fleece side. I guess it could be useful on a cold winter night.
