Great news that has to be shared. Through the kind efforts of Just Plain Dave and Quiet Bill, who located the container ship “Tiger Breeze,” I was able to confirm a booking today from Port Klang Malaysia and Chennai, India on or about December 12, 2008. So, one big travel hoop to jump through has been cleared. And I am ecstatic about it! The only other passage I am worried about is Africa to Latin America. But we’ll deal with that in a few months.
This passage means I will get to visit Ihtisham in Banlgadesh and Rajesh in Mumbai without having to travel through China and Pakistan via the Khunjerab Pass in the winter, which I doubt is even open. Sweetness abounds.
Now I am really going to disappear. Just had to share the great news.
