Bit of Dancing… Bit of Christmas…

Drills, drills, drills… It’s all about the safety onboard a ship. I mean no one wants to sink, or fall overboard, but as long as you know what to do if it happens then all is good. The day in Mazatlan started with a man overboard drill. Grab the necessary people, add a nurse then lower the fast response craft into the water and drop off a dummy ready for collection…

 
You can see the poor dummy on the left… Thankfully he was recovered safely and returned to the ship. 

So as a nice little welcome to their city, the locals decided to put on a bit of entertainment for the ship. You could hear the band playing as we were pulling up alongside… Then the dancers got going…

 

Well, due to being unable to get off the ship this day… That’s all you’re going to see of Mazatlan. However, I did manage to jump off the ship in Pago Pago. 

  

… And after a quick look round this beautiful place you can obviously guess exactly what it needs to make it a complete city. I mean you can’t have a city without one of them. It’s mandatory. 

  
Markets seemed quite popular in this place. It wasn’t the wealthiest of places and so you would have a job finding any shop we would recognise. Markets however… Well they work a treat. Although as can be seen its all about the location…

  
  
I’ll leave you with a slightly belated Christmas photo. Very late I know. It’s April. In fact almost early now…

The medical team…
