Hallo everybody, first of all I realize there has been a big bunch of mails last month that did not go away from the server. So if you feel we have been bad in responding it might be that the mail did not reach you, let us know, please.

We are still in Suva waiting for a thunderstorm to pass over us. We intended to sail off tomorrow but it looks really bad for that.

In the middle of this tropical rainfall we can see some Baptist baptizing some of their fellows just by the beach here, it looks amazing, everybody steps into the water in clothes and in the rainfall one after the other is baptized by the priest.

Yesterday we got our batteries right on time and it is fantastic, now we have power without running the generator!

It was a dangerous and heavy job to take them out with the dinghy and lift them up to the boat. Each battery weighs probably 20 kg plus. The guy from Sunrise was amazing, helping to load, carry, install and take the old batteries back ashore.
