Day 6 (5th of October)- Take 1

Losing yet another hour made getting up no easy feat and our arrival for a Spanish omlette breakfast a bit later than usual. The ship stopped at some point in the morning and the Hanjin Yantian floated all alone on the Great Pacific. Watching another ‘Moonlight’ episode, hand washing our clothes and attempting to write a Canadian resume sped us to midday without us even realising it. Today Mahlzeit was chilli coated potatoes, honeyed carrots, cabbage of some sort, carrots, bean sprouts, french beans, garlic, onions, red and green peppers and tofu. More ping-pong after lunch and Jenny’s started beating me so I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be willing to play her.

I finished reading ‘Around the World in 80 Days’, but starting already on ‘Five Weeks in a Balloon’ is a bit too much of the same. Midway through another episode the power cut out, the air conditioning went off and all was silent apart from the waves and a bit of wind howling as it does around the containers. It was a bit alarming but I’d guessed some more work had to be done on an engine from overhearing at lunch the few sentences shared between the chief engineer and captain. Now Jenny’s reading Les Miserable, which looks ever so boring while I’m writing and playing major catch-up for the blog.

The evening meal, which we also arrived late for, was extremely hot potato, rice and a really good mixture of aubergine, tomatoes, peppers and onion. Echt lecker war diese Mahlzeit. Having taken some rolls and a few carrot sticks we weren’t in the position to play ping pong so went to our room and played Bananagram.
