April Fools!

April Fools played a good trick on us today. We actually got to begin our journey up the canal! After an early morning and expectations of another day in Port Suez it was a nice surprise to finally say hello to our pilot, who boarded Argo for the day and escorted us up to Ishmalia. While the pilot didn’t speak a lot of English, we were able to learn that he has four children. It was a bit of a silent journey with lots of pointing and “no problem.” There were definitely good vibes onboard today and this joint sense of accomplishment for being in the canal, something that not a lot of people get to experience. Tonight we’re anchored in the harbor in Ishmalia and tomorrow early morning we’ll hopefully finish our passage through the canal to the Med.
