My time ashore yesterday had been brief and under heavy surveillance, more than on the ship where one of them watched all of us. Ashore it seemed like each of us had its own team of three, scrutinizing our every move.
In short order with my reporting done I was back on the ship.
It was an uneasy night. A battery of spotlights were trained on the ship the whole time.
And we have endured more waiting today. Elijah queried me about what I saw. By my estimation I believe the population of this port is even smaller than its sister city. Are they trying to hide that fact?
By sundown the three containers were secured aboard.
Tomorrow we leave.
