Departure from the Real World

**Well, this is 28 days late… SO sorry for the delay, everyone. But I have not had a moment’s rest since we left Yokohama on April 1st. But for this very limited time that I have sitting in a shisha cafe in Port Said, Egypt, I am going to try to do a bit of catching up with a few write-ups and at least one photo per post (sorry, but they are taking a long time to upload) from my first few weeks with Peace Boat. So, here we go…

Although it feels like the departure from Yokohama was forever ago, in reality, Peace Boat left Japan only a few weeks ago. But seriously, I had to check my calendar to actually believe that fact because time is no longer an organized or concrete or concept here… but I will get to that in another post. For this one, just try to imagine the buzz of excitement felt from over 800 passengers about to set sail on a 103-day trip around the world. The music, streamers and shouts of “ITEKIMASU” (bye for now) was incredible.
