This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Tug boat update

Yesterday, the rented tugboat Defender arrived in the port of Monrovia from Togo, to replace the disabled Liberian tugboat Bushrod Island. Today the port is a hive of activity again, as the ships that have been sitting for days at anchor out at sea can dock and start unloading. Today also sees the arrival of spare parts and mechanics for the Bushrod Island so repairs to the damaged engine can begin. We are all breathing a sigh of relief. Olly
