Another day, another sunrise...

Yup, still here. Here being offshore Angola :-<. The days are beginning to melt into one another. Heh, that sounds awfully familiar, doesn't it? The difference being that in this case, the days tend to be quite significantly different as such. There is just that overwhelming thing in common, we're still here :|. Good thing is the food situation has improved dramatically, thanks to a much needed re-supply! There's even some chocolate lying around :D. With over a third of the crew actually homebound (lucky bastards :|), and their replacements yet to arrive, the ship has a somewhat deserted feel to it. Lots of empty cabins. Interesting thing is most of the guys who were sharing cabins earlier haven't bothered to spread out. I guess we are more or less past caring... Not that a six week trip would be a distressingly long one. It's just that as it stands, we are pretty much set to do 150% of the time we were supposed to :|. I realise that there's a bit of a repetitive tone to this :). I suppose the good thing is due to the situation I'm actually able to make it to sunrises and sunsets most days :). I know, I'm really clutching at straws here. And seeing how many times 'crew-change day's have come and gone, the latest edition hasn't been greeted by too much enthusiasm. Well, it has. Some people never learn :).

Currently: guardedly hopeful
Listening to: Finn Brothers - Anything can happen (yes, I am actually listening to this! coincidence? :P)

On a cheery note (somewhat), i declare that Trident has one of the best helidecks ever - vast, quiet and the best perch to watch a sunset from :)

I could say the same about Neptune too ;-) .. *Obviously* :-D)
I remember the time when i wake up just in time for the Sunrise and go and watch the sunsets too... Something celestial and serene about it..

dunno about serene, but definitely sanity-preserving :)
