Not really very near Mauritania - not near anything at all. As the picture shows the sea is blue with occasional shoals of flying fish but apart from those there is nothing not even other shipping. The sun is getting stronger and the water in the pool is almost warm enough for me- about 23. We have been busy doing a treasure hunt and are going to hear a Canadian passenger talk about a 3 day dog sledding trip. It sounds excellent nut you camp out and need clothes that cope with -30. We are thinking of you all in colder climates and amidst Christmas build up.
It is poppy day and we half expected a minutes silence ,there was none but at 11.11 on 11.11 the Germans rushed to the bar to open champagne to celebrate the start of a new drinking season!
Can't get over how many Germans conform to stereotype although we are better than them at bagging the pointers outside our cabin door.
Had a film show on deck last night in german on the sinking of a tall ship in this not of the ocean perhaps not the most obvious choice?
