On the Way to Mauritius
Just a quick update on life at sea: we are traveling along the coast of South Africa, where the seas are notoriously rocky. The meeting of the Agulhas and Benguela currents cause this due to their different speeds and temperatures that meet and cause larger waves. It also dosen’t help that we are following a storm and so that makes it even more rocky. It’s a little difficult to sleep with the motion, although I haven’t really gotten seasick. Classes and work are also more difficult to get through when you’re being constantly jolted in different directions.
