Suez Canal ,second day

The day started at 5.00am for us. We were subjected to the usual Egyptian malaise, as our pilot only arrived forty minutes late. Although forty minutes was a good result in the context of typical Egyptian lethargy. The early morning temperature was 15 degrees, which is something we are are not all used to after having spent a long period in warmer climes. As soon as Pangaea had entered back into the canal, I was hoisted up to the top of the main mast. At 36 meters above deck you certainly see a lot more and the panoramic perspective of having land closely on either side of the boat is indeed a unique perspective. There was a continual haze above the water due to the temperature inversion, and in fact the rest of the crew on deck were comparatively speaking a lot colder than I was up there. There are some interesting photos which I hope will bring my viewers some perspective of the Suez Canal amongst the desert topography and the passing giant ships.
We arrived at 10.30am at Port Said, and once again this could be an extreme test of our patience as we are subject to a long wait at the hands of Egyptian authorities….Now we going to Italy with quick stopover in Greece .

        Funny you should ask as I just looked into that over the weekend. I use wordpress.com and considered having the ability to use plug ins, which you can only use with the wordpress.org. However, there are benefits that the .com offers that the .org doesn’t. Also, I don’t have a way to self-host my site. Sorry I couldn’t help.
