My childhood mind was really excited by the word “skyscraper” when first I encountered it in a reader. My parents, immigrant farmers, never used the word, nor was there any need for the word in a rural world where the tallest non-natural structure was a silo. My adult mind is excited by large machines, especially ships. Hence, I blog about them.

APL’s Vietnam was loading in the harbor a few days back. Check out their fleet info and board of directors. Check here for their history. Let’s zoom in to some details today and maybe tomorrow. Watch the aftmost crane.

Now let’s get even closer.

Imagine sitting in that tiny tinted bubble lifting thousands of tons a day. What a workout.  The cabin is not unlike that on a farm machine.
