Being in dry dock means the electricity comes and goes as it pleases. Ok, it's not that simple, but me, a simple user sees only that much. We had to shut down most of the hospital deck, the lights on the corridors and even the power in the cabins - meaning our wedding cake in the freezer started to defrost itself :( Oh, and it's VERY hot! The ship heats up in no time and since we cannot open the windows and portholes, we are basically boiling inside. :(
|My clock melted!!!|
The ships are "standing" on these little blocks with wheels. It's hard to believe they don't tip on either side, apparently the weight of the vessel is enough to keep them firmly placed on these rolling Lego blocks. :)
|That tube was our rubbish drop. The opening is normally where we hook up the gangway to. In the bottom you can see another opening: that square cut is where they removed the AC unit and installed the new one. Pretty cool!|
|The ship from the front.|
|Here you can see how tall is our lady. That's me in the front in case you didn't recognised me :)|
|This portable gangway served as our exit and entrance to the ship. Let me tell ya, it moved an awful lot!|
|That's me too, showing you the size of the ship from the back.|
BEFORE-AFTER PICTURES :)
Am I strong or what??? :)
Yes, I was under the ship jumping in to save the day as a few Lego blocks rolled away :)
Who can forget the famous scene with Leo and Kate at the bow? Well, Darren and I wore our wedding outfits for this special photo shoot...
And here is a very nice professional video that my good friend, Ryan Chen made for Mercy Ships. Enjoy!
