Damn i was about to say something profound but looks like the ships left the slip...sorry couldn't help myself.

I will wrap this up quick. I do feel as though there is an air not of envy but maybe of resentment. This can only be expected when a whole community based on tradition and knowledge sees someone doing what they have worked so hard to do with no respect for tradition and no knowlege of the craft.

But really what better way is there to learn?

Greetings and Salutations

I arrived here via a link from the Bumfuzzle logs, so, I can start right off saying I am a fan of theirs.

I may have read about half the posts in this tread, and by now, as you know, it is impossible to require reading of all the pages (is not just long, but repetitive).

Zero Sailing experience and barely 3 or 4 day cruises in a 28 foot motorboat of a friend.

IF there is such a thing as a typical cruiser, clearly Pat and Ali are not on that list. But, remember, that is IF THERE IS SUCH A THING AS A TYPICAL CRUISER.

My biggest admiration to Pat and Ali is for their willingness and interest in knowing and meeting locals. For all those whinnings about their pursuit of Pizza, I also clearly remember their experience drinking coffee filtered with the hair of a cow's tail...

Their love and memories for Erithrea and it's people makes me admire their brand of tourism.

I wonder how much longer than their circunavigation will this tread go.

Carlos
