I have been at sea now for more than 24 hours since the Free Gaza sailed from the last of the Greek island ports en route for Cyprus.
Life on board is beginning to test us all now but morale is still very high and our bonds as a team are growing stronger. We probably all pong since there are no showers or bathing facilitates on board and I have not had a good scrub for three days at least. There are a couple of toilets, but I am feeling slightly queasy at the moment so we'll skip those details.
Living conditions as you have probably gathered are very basic and below decks is so hot and humid that most of us prefer to sleep on deck.
