The other 2 today have been finished for a while now, I just never had the time (or the proper internet connection) to add the pictures and post it. So, enjoy the rare opportunity of reading and seeing several stories on day! :)
The sad reason for this post is that
Darren and I are leaving Guinea and the Africa Mercy and Mercy Ships in 50 days. :(
When this realisation hit me I did a mental check of all the pictures I had and had to conclude that it is time to start taking pictures of 'everyday things' - things I took for granted while we lived here...
So, for the next 50 days I will show you the personal side of this ship, the way I perceived it. There will be normal posts, too, (fret not you need, young Padavan!) this is just a kind of closure for us as we get ready to pack up our wonderful life here and to ensure we collect all the good memories along the way...
The first picture(s) should be dedicated to our wonderful ship's family: the extended Davies family. We spent endless hours in their cabin every week discussing science, politics, history, sci-fi, food, ships' stuff; we watched movies and played games; celebrated birthdays and had late night cheese parties...and many many more wonderful memories.
I am not sure when the Nerd Herd expression first came on us, but if it means good discussions, tons of new information to expand my knowledge and even more laughter then I don't mind being called a nerd! :)
Darren's 33rd birthday party - Shelly made an awesome chocolate-ice cream cake!
SlashDot Party - it turns out we all have at least one iDevice...
