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.

Another ship sinks

Earlier this week, an old Nigerian freighter that has been moored outside the port's breakwaters for a few months, started taking on water, and is now lying on the seabed with its starboard side, part of the bridge, and its cranes showing clearly. Whilst it was in the process of sinking, local fishing boats evacuated the crew. Its a shame that another few thousand tonnes of steel have been added to Liberia's seabed, which will eventually cost millions of dollars to salvage and will remain a shipping hazzard until then.
