In Hong Kong harbor

One of the container ships that frequently crosses our path. It's flagged Majuro. I've been there and I'm pretty sure there is no harbor that it could dock in..

You know I thought so too, but it's been a long time since we've been there and lot's have changed. (See map here) According to the Marshall Islands Visitor Authority: "The Marshall Islands has 12 deep-water docks that are capable of handling large ocean-going vessels. Both Majuro and Kwajalein's commercial docks are capable of accommodating deep draft vessels and can service both container and bulk storage vessels. Majuro has two deep water ports and a large freight container yard which was designed to attract shippers wishing to use Majuro as a transshipment port."

P.S. Trip down memory lane. The School is still standing.
