long time to spend in a space as small
as this. Yet there is everything here
aboard that you could find in a town,
almost. At afiy rate it will feel good
to get ashore for a little while and
feel normal again if that's possible

are a great deal of restrictions that
we are subjected to in our actions and
where we go, wherewe-nay eat' and
our attitude and actions toward the

"It will be good not to have to work
so hard every day. We will probably
stay in port for ten days. Makes a
