The wrong way to say 'goodbye'...

'So long guys' is the way we used to say our goodbyes in the neighbourhood where I grew up as a kid. I don't suppose it's that much different in your home towns in Norway. But I'm sure we didn't much care about these things back then in Kudat? Getting our tired boats fixed up in the hot sun and the dusty grime of the boat yard was just fine as long as we could all drink the cheap Malay beer when the sun went down, sitting in the cool evening shade and the dirty Chinese restaurant, eating our way through dubious dishes of fabulous food that never ended...

Me and Neil from Sanna and you hardened Berserk adventurers, with John and the Phillipino Princess from the rusting Sir Gallagher. And Graham fixing up his boat before his mother arrived, Marco and the gorgeous Rosa aboard the Italian Borossa. We even sat and laughed through the lazy evenings with the impossible Germans off the boat who's name we cannot remember, the ones that never bought their own beers? We listened to your incredible tales in the northern ice and you laughed at our own stories of misfortune and pirates. Even Hadji the Muslim smiled and beamed his toothless grin, though he never understood anything we said...

And I'm sure it was you Tom who sneaked off in the night with the young Malay girl from the canteen. You know the one? She cried through the day after you all left...
