Subject: News -update  ;-)

Stigli ovdje u srijedu ali nismo mogli ici u grad sve do danas, zbog nekih komplikacija oko papira. Ima tu neki agent Muhamed koji nije bas sposoban pa je zapelo kod njega. Jako je vruce i po noci se slabo spava. Sutra idemo malo prohodati po okolini navodno ima finih stvari da se vidi pa ako stignem javicu kako je. Ovdje se ne bi trebali zadrzavati jer smo vec u zakasnjenju sto se tice klime i sezone, tako da cemo krenuti cim stignu indijske vize. Put od Al Mukale do Omana je bio ok, samo je bilo vrlo malo vjetra pa smo puno vozili motorom :-/// Postoji mogucnost da tako bude do Indije pa ovdje kupujemo puno goriva, ukupno cu imati oko 170 litara sto bi trebalo biti dovoljno za 800 milja. Do Bombaya ima 1100 milja. Toliko za danas, javimo se cim prije sa novim friskim vrucim novostima :-) Sretno !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW u Al Mukalli smo sreli Larryja sa Blue Star. Slomila mu se osovina propelera a nije mogao jedriti jer tri dana nije bilo vjetra. Konacno je uspio dogurati do nekog mjesta u Jemenu, 20 milja zapadno od Al Mukalle. Nada se da ce uspjeti popraviti kvar za sedmicu dvije i pridruziti nam se na svecanom doceku Vasco da Gama relija u Bombaju...

Subject: Pozdrav iz Yemena!

Ovaj Yemen mi se svidio, ugodno iznenadjenje. Ljudi su vrlo prijatni i
sve je jeftino. Nazalost, ostajemo vrlo kratko jer smo u crvenom moru
izgubili puno vremena. Popodne polazimo za Salalu (Oman) gdje bi
trebali stici za 4 dana. Tamo ostajemo 3-4 dana i onda put Indije, oko
1000 milja do Bombaja, 2-3 sedmice. Nazalost, mi imamo samo malo vremena da se
javimo iz ovih internet kafica ali mozda cemo se moci malo vise i
redovnije javljati od maja, iz Indije.

Mjesto Al Mukalla, polazimo popodne za Salalu u Omanu,
normalno bi trebali stici do cetvrtka, insh'Allah kako
kazu Jemeniti.
 
Sve ok, samo paklena vrucina. Nadam se da cu moci
pisati malo detaljnije iz Omana. Pozdrav...

Blue Star to su nasi dobri prijatelji ali  ne znamo sta je bilo s
njima pa smo zabrinuti. Otkazao im je motor usred piratske zone. Do
sad su vec davno trebali stici bilo u Al Mukalu bilo u Salalu ali jos
uvijek nema vijest od njih. Nadajmo se da je ipak sve OK...
