Last week when I transited KVK on Peking, I noticed that crew on other ships take notice when something unusual passes, like a century-old barque. This crewman on Eagle Boston grabbed his camera, and



so did these guys on Kristin Poling.



Crewman aboard New Delhi Express took fotos and waved.



On the other hand, some work needs to get done in port like . . .



these three guys touching up paint on the QV anchor and waterline or



washing the glass around the sky promenade below horns that could swallow this poor guy.  Suppose these same guys put on aprons later and serve drinks?


“So what’d did you do while in the port of New York, pa?” asks young Hassan or Sammy.

Note: Keep up with the QV through the bridgecam, but don’t expect to see any crew doing touchup paint.
