Woke up too early, had gym (legs) before breakfast. No one there – it was 6 am. The clock changed an hour again. How many hours do we have to change? We’ve changed six hours now, in nine days. I had to make a graph:
We travel at about 35 km/h, and much of it is going south. At Santa Cruz (about the midway of our trip) you need to change one hour per day if you travel 53 km/h. So if it wasn’t for the south, it’d almost make sense. But then again, time zones never, so forget about this. Even Spain is European time, although they are mostly west of Greenwich. Btw, I also put Irkutsk up there, since there was also an hour a day on the Trans-Siberian. But you’d only need 43 km/h up there, and we’d be doing 70 on average, so that felt too little.
Anyway, speeds of 35 km/h and 70 km/h are ridiculous, with all the technology we have today. We could easily build a train that takes you from Europe to East Asia in two days, if we wanted. Maybe one day if magnetic. As for ships, I don’t know but will get back to it.
Then breakfast. Then Portuguese:
It gets a bit political now. Os deputados perdem as eleições. BECAUSE A classe trabalhadora pode votar. BUT Os políticos não querem eleger o candidato. SO Eu quero a democracia e a liberdade.
Lunch. Slept. Ran 9 km. Dinner. Played Monopoly. Won. Tomorrow we’ll be in Saint Martin, on the Dutch side. We’ll buy a better board game, play it and donate to the ship. The next passengers need it!
