I’ve arrived in Male’ – descending through stacks of cumulonimbus to be greeted by spectacular sights of atolls framed by a turquoise sea. It’s hot and sunny – 30 degrees celsius in the shade, but the forecast shows a front on the way, so we may meet some cooling showers during the week.
Shidha and I have met, shared our expectations for the expedition and discussed the week’s programme – she is familiar with the route we are taking and looking forward to training you, as am I.
I have a Maldivian phone number now – (+960) 768 3387, so if you need to contact me in an emergency this is the number to call.
Wishing you all a safe journey, and see you tomorrow at 11.00 at the Coffee Club
