...back in the UK and living a "normal" life
after nearly 8 years with Mercy Ships...
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.

From east to west
On Sunday evening we crossed the Greenwich Meridian, thus moving from the eastern hemisphere to the western hemisphere. Last night we moved our clocks back an hour, so we are now on GMT, which is also Sierra Leone's time zone. The sail continues to be smooth and uneventful. Olly
PS I am constantly amused when I hear people describing the developed world as "the west", when in fact Sierra Leone and Liberia are further west than most of Europe including the UK.
