Thanks Coops, that's an interesting watch. Love the music, sounded like Ethiopian music?

I have no interest In going to sea in such small boats. It reminds me of the guy who sailed around the world in an a open boat.

Incredible! And I thought MY boat was small.

The cultural experience alone would be just mind blowing.

Not sure I would say "hero"- I have other names perhaps but hero is not one of them I think my friend the psych nurse would agree that's a special kind of person
