Cruising in the Tropics.
Thursday 26th July - Profondeville to Namur

"As idle as a painted ship 
Upon a painted ocean. "

“Thirty-seven degrees” declared the neon on the pharmacy nearby as we sat on the opposite bank, sipping a drink loaded with ice while waiting for the shade from the Casino or the Citadel, we didn’t care which, to engulf our little blue polyester oven.
