On Thursday, March 3, Cyan entered Aden harbor, Yemen, just before dawn. A rally of boats that had come in just before us and we, three boats with tired and stressed crew, had to anchor in the dark while dodging boats, platforms, and huge moorings. We got to sleep at 6:30 a.m. So here we are right in the middle of the Yemeni revolution, and even hearing gunfire at night, but still we feel safer than on the pirate-infested sea. When we went food shopping yesterday, our taxi driver told us he was part of the protest and carried the flag in some parade. By the way, the supermarket was such a joy—the best since Australia, and better than Singapore because it is so much cheaper. Reminded me of my beloved Kroger! Or Ralph's in L.A.! They did have incense burning, whole skinned lambs hanging up and five kinds of feta cheese—a little different.
