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.

Stinking rotten fish

There has been a strong smell of fish on Deck 8 for a couple of days, which I mistook it to be the smell of cooking fish from the Crew Galley. Today, however, my colleague from Sierra Leone sheepishly admitted he had tried to dry fish in the back of a Land Rover (such is his passion), but they had started to rot instead. We opened the Land Rover (#998)...and it was CRAWLING with maggots happily feeding on stinking rotten fish. He is still up there now, repeatedly washing out 9#98 whilst the maggots are all fleeing across the scorching hot deck. Tonight I look forward to smelling freshly deck-roasted maggot instead of rotting fish. Olly
