The Slow Boat Is Reaching China part 11

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMonday 3 November 2014

The sea is much rougher today and the wind is up. This ain’t the tropics no more as we head for Shanghai. It’s about 18C, not especially cold, but windy. The ship’s stabilisers do a very good job of keeping us steady, but the water in the pools is really sloshing around. No problems with seasickness and I don’t anticipate any.

I do have a problem with my right leg, though, a break in the skin that’s leaking, so I’ve had to dress it with a waterproof bandage and step up the antibiotic. It means I can’t go in the pool, of course, and I haven’t tried for the whole trip.

And that was it for Monday.
