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.

Swimmers disturbed

Anna and I got a bit of a shock this evening as we walked past the abandoned Blue Atlantic, which is moored on the other side of our dock. Two filthy (and desperate looking) theives were chased out of it by a policeman, and over the ship's side into the water where they swam away. Both men were filthy and covered in oil - not the kind of guys you'd like to bump into on a dark night - and had somehow managed to climb aboard the ship in broad daylight to loot it. Their journey across the port was closely watched by the Seaport Police and Nigerian UN soldiers. Maybe they were caught and taught a lesson. Maybe they weren't. Olly
