Title: Aden at anchor

12:47N 44:59E

12.00 5th March - now on Aden time (GMT -3 hrs)

Think I missesd the position update yesterday but it should show us
correctly now, not far from the Prince of Wales jetty in Aden Harbour.

Check in was simple and low key. We met fellow cruisers that we had only
spoken to on the net and walked a few yards to have dinner with some of
them. Chicken and kebabs but no alcohol! Practically a dry town. Slept like
logs for a full 8 hours. Quite a novelty. This morning we have been
alongside the quay taking on water and washing the boat. Our tanks literally
ran dry yesterday and we made it in on bottled water.

Now settling in and off for a bit of shopping this afternoon. We have
promised Jim & Ged on Albert II a bbq on StB this evening. They have been
our constant companons and have been very good company.
