We toured the French Navy ship Mistral today. Wow - she's very big, and very cool. She dwarfs the Africa Mercy, as you can see: below, Anna and Noah from the Africa Mercy's top deck:
Below, inside the massive hanger deck complete with two helicopters:
...where over 1000 French nationals slept whilst being evacuated from the Lebanon in 2006 during the Israeli bombings:
Below, our kids on the flight deck, where 6 helicopters can land and take off simultaneously.
A very comprehensive tour! Thank you, French Navy! Olly
