Hey Mates, Great adrenaline-high and adventurous events going on in the Gulf of Aden. Pirates fever is on its peak these days(if u follow the media news editions). Passing onboard Mega 133m Seabourn Spirit with respectful squad of French heavy armed soldiers onboard and an escorting Fregate with a Heli around for long distance surveylance. Night vision equipment, machine guns, armory etc. What an honour and a thrill Some ships transmit sporadically Pirate's May Day, then our French guys load their weapons and stand-by staring at the horizon - amazing experience, isn't it ? We are making our way through the Gulf towards Khasab and Dubai later. Wish us luck ~! Godspeed !
