Greetings from Guinea, Conkrey

Greetings from Guinea, Conkrey

We arrived at 9:00 am this morning after a 5 day sail from Tenerife through mostly smooth waters.
We were met by a brass band, the President and his entourage.
The ship has only ½ of one berth space. The bow of the ship sticks way out into the water past the dock.
I am not sure how the patients will fit on the dock, let alone anything else!
We have arrived in rainy season in the midst of a cholera outbreak….got to watch out for those puddles!
We have not been allowed off ship past the dock area, so my impressions of Guinea are few at this point.

Leaving Tenerife

There is however, an amazing view from the starboard side of a breakwater and islands in the distance.
With no imagination at all, they could be the Gulf Islands! Tried to take a picture, but it is too misty. Will have to wait for brighter weather.
Sending you a few pictures contrasting our port in Tenerife, to that in Guinea.

Love to all,

Jane
