Well, we aren’t allowed to travel but our UK cars are now lounging in Las Palmas on their way home.
The Sofia Celeste docked last night and it won’t be long before we know the due date back in the UK as soon as it sails.
Meanwhile, the Maersk Luz with continental cars did not offload during it’s brief stop in Rotterdam but continued on to Bremerhaven where it is circling awaiting an opportunity to dock. News from GPS Logistics is that it is expected to return to Rotterdam to offload the cars on the 12th May; roughly the same time as the UK cars reach England.
Although Destination Rally should be hosting us on a boat on Lake Kariba today before heading to Harare, Bruno and his team are busy in Brussels helping with the pandemic effort.
Here is Bruno’s summary of the action.
“I played hockey for 20 years and my son and daughter also play.
As the crisis situation develops a lot of low income families are suffering and are in need of just the basics .. daily food.
2 players on the International team decided to get busy.
Since my daughter is involved, and Destination Rally is on stand-by, we have decided to give a helping hand with our technical vehicles.
We just took all the tools out and are circling the Brussels surroundings collecting food from hockey families.
The organisers were on National television, and the whole action has been good so far.
Farmers have given the potatoes that they can’t sell due to overproduction.
A cookies and chocolate maker has given his whole Easter production that was going nowhere.
A Beverage maker sent us crates of dinks.
And all the hockey families and kids have given more than 2 tons of food for the 4 different foodbanks that we are helping in Brussels.
When we did our first delivery, there were about 100 people waiting in line. 2 weeks later , there are more than 900 people and families queuing for food.
Anyway, we just wanted to show solidarity and help the best we could.
