Blackout day and teaching an African how to swim…

General comment, Mercy Ships, street photography

Well I do have some more serious and informative posts coming up, but since I’m still gathering information on these things here’s a few more snaps taken on the blackout day. A few times a year the ship needs to cut the electricity in order to perform maintenance checks and repairs. So this time they got everybody off ship to a local sports facility.

We brought along a few of the day volunteers – one of whom didn’t know how to swim. This piece of information accounts for perhaps one of the dodgy photos of nurses holding up Togolese men in the water.

As for the rest – you’ll have to take my word for it that it is innocent fun.

After a good afternoon burning under the West African sun in the pool, four of us decided to head out with the day volunteers for some local grub on the Boulevard.
