The Captain has made his decision. He will offload those containers invoiced for this port under two criteria, those not filled with foodstuffs and those with no possible future use.
With this decision which will place the ship in port for the immediate future, Elijah felt moved to approach the Captain with his request. He asked permission of the Captain for us to go on shore.
When he asked why, Elijah told him we must seek out followers of Hamashiach. Though reticent the Captain gave his assent.
We met with the Purser to talk about his family and how to find his home. He gave the information whole-heartedly.
We made our way through the empty streets to his home.
