getting the ferry

In Sierra Leone the airport is across the water from the city of Freetown so you have to cross by water taxi or ferry (unless you want a really, really long drive). The ferry takes 45 mins + to cross over the the airport side where someone meets people from the Ship and transports them to the airport. We ending up spending 2 1/2 hours waiting for the ferry last week to say goodbye to Sarah's Mum and sister and to help another friend drive one of the ships landrovers on the ferry to transport a patient over by car. I can't say I am looking forward to it much - but I guess an hour on a ferry to get the plane is preferable to sailing for a few days non stop.
