We have been brought into harbor. But instead of the empty berth next to the grain ship, we were escorted to the other side of the harbor.
It may well be because we are a container ship, and this side of the harbor is given over to them. Still the Captain is highly displeased with the assignment for he won’t rest until he confronts his First Mate.
Elijah let it be known that he and I want to go ashore as soon as possible, and asked how long the ship would be in port.
The Captain put off the question of our stay, until we know more about local conditions, but did promise we could go ashore when he did.
