Location: Port Suez, Egypt

Today we were delayed again from entering the Suez Canal, and so we spent it catching up on sleep and schoolwork. We had a class-filled day and had an oceanography practical with charts of the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea. In the afternoon, we experienced a real-life sandstorm and got to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner down below (for our first salon squeeze). We were all relieved to have passed in our oceanography projects and got a fair amount of other schoolwork done.
