A sunset unfolds through the round porthole in the deck door (guess what direction we're headed!)

Our cabin opens onto a corridor,
with an aft-facing external door to our own "deck".

Maris Freighter Cruises cautioned us several times that this is a working ship, not operated for passengers. Nonetheless, our quarters are fine: a carpeted sitting room and a bedroom. We have a TV monitor, DVD player, stereo radio/cd player. Our cabin is on Deck F, where three rectangular windows face forward. Tom relaxes below one of them. Three face the starboard side, one above Liz's desk. Back inside, through the arch, is our bathroom, a desk for Tom, and our bed with its painting above it.
Did Liz mention that she was the only women among twenty-four men?

To prove we come with the ship, we sport our IDs in port.
Until our last stop in Busan, we were the only passengers.
Then Steve Thenell boarded for his passage home from Japan where he taught English for five years.
