Letter March 22

Hey guys, sorry for the delay in writing, the last couple days have been pretty
busy, and the preceding week there was nothing noteworthy. We arrived off the
port of Jorf Lasfar Morocco and sat at anchor for 6 days before going in to the
dock to discharge. The first night in port I had the duty and had to remain on
the ship. Yesterday we had the vetting that was scheduled for our discharge. the
vetting went very well. I was able to make it ashore yesterday evening. I
remained inside the terminal, as customs was a hassle to get through. being a
vastly Muslim country it was hard to find any place that served beer (Muslims do
not drink), however there was a small store inside the terminal that did serve
beer. I did not eat off of the ship in Morocco. The Stewards department does not
match their menu with what port we are in. The phrase ” the seas are standing
up” refers to rough weather or tall waves, as opposed to calm weather or smooth
seas ” the seas are lying down”. We are now north bound to Mongstad Norway to
take on a load of Gasoline before heading back across the Atlantic, our
discharge port is unkown at this point. This means we will pass through the
English channel and pass the Cliffs of Dover, if we pass them during daylight
hours I will do my best to get a picture. Hope school is going well. -Cameron
