Suakin, amazing place

Today Werner and Uwe got the flexible coupling out! It's a big relief to get it done and not a drop of water went inside the boat. Uwe helped us again diving under the boat. Tomorrow they will move again going north and it will be sad to see them go. We hope we will be able to catch up with them before the Suez Canal.
Just before lunch we drove north to Port Sudan. It's a very good smooth road through the sand, several settlements of what could only be called tents or cardboard shacks, they all looked they will break anytime but most were tidy and cared for. Sometimes we saw camels and goats. Some of the houses are far from everything. We could see some women walking with very colourful dressed (pink, red, yellow) so different than Oman and Yemen where they all dressed in black. In town we only could see men, one or two women only. Port Sudan was a lot bigger than we expected, the streets are wide streets and some old colonial buildings not in a too bad shape.
We went to the DHL to check the possibility to send the part and it was nice to talk with the manager. We still don't know how much it will cost yet but at least we know where we will send the part to.
We went after to the Palace Hotel to check the internet to get some manuals downloaded and we were able to speak on skype! It's nice sometimes even for a short time. Tomorrow we will try to get the part ordered and this week we will be here waiting, doing school and some jobs on the boat. We will also enjoy the internet connection that we can get inside the boat.
