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.

M/V Torm Alexandra update

One year ago on 16th August 2007, a Ghanaian salvage team started their salvage attempt on the Torm Alexandra. They have so far been successful in righting the ship and floating the bow, but the stern remains submerged despite continual pumping. I seriously doubt we will see the ship fully floated before we leave Liberia mid December. Photo above of the Torm Alexandra as she capsized on 24th July 2002. Photo below of the ship as we found her upon our return to Liberia in mid February 2008. Olly
