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.

Mold/Mould

I once read a Graham Greene book set in Liberia, in which the climate was so damp that the ex-pat characters had to wipe mold of their leather book covers. Now I know what he was writing about. Everything leather here grows mold if its not kept in air conditioning - including shoes, sofas, hand-bags and even Land Rover steering wheels and car upholstery. And currently, black mold is growing all over the ship's exterior, where the warm damp air is condensing on the cool metal walls. So this is rainy season! It will take a long time to scrub the ship clean and mold-free. Olly

Black and green mold growing on Deck 7. Fascinating photo, eh?
