Tom getting ready for arriving with his flag of Togo
Most of the nursery/preschool boys making faces after watching the pilot board
Oh yes we are IN TOGO!!!
The tug says we are in Lome, Togo and there are some crew members waving from it!
This is our berth on the right, just a little further than where the people are standing
We were welcomed by a great crowd on the dock, a whole brass band and then a whole lot of drums playing 'our God is an awesome God' and some French African songs that have come to be so familiar to us. It is good to see old friends, crew who have been striving here to get things ready for us and some of last years day volunteers come back to welcome us.
Singing from the end of the dock and a brass band welcome
More people where the ship has docked to welcome us with music
Togo's flag being carried down the gangway to start the arrival ceremony
Pictures of the new dock to follow. More pics on Olly and Sally's blog, although don't get any ideas that the view out of our window is like theirs! We're facing the dock!
