Land Ahoy!

Well, this morning I received a note from my contact at the ferry company in Odessa:

All looks good, and if the Georgian immigration formalities can be completed in record time (less than about four hours) we will be off, and in Tbilisi tonight.

Pondering the Georgian immigration forms
So, perhaps I will fly to Baku tomorrow afternoon and spend a day there … or maybe stay in Tbilisi and fly home from there on Friday …. we will see! In the meantime, spirits are lifted high, the mood on the ship is so buoyant we will need to be tethered to the sea.

It has been a very interesting few days, and as a part of life’s rich tapestry, a valuable thread.

More tomorrow on the journey from Poti onwards!

The pilot arrives …
