18th January 2008 – Today would be a great day if everything worked out the way it should have been planned! Normally the ship wakes me up, but today I woke up with the ship. In the early morning I was expecting the men of the Belgian phone company to come connect my Internet cable. They were not only later, the just could not help me. A new cable has to be laid and this can only be done by another department of the company, so next Wednesday the earliest.

I went ordering the wood for the interior framework of the ship and I found a system for placing wood against the sides without having to drill in the wood.

The gangway of my neighbour felt next to the ship. After trying for an hour we had to give up. The gangway is on land and another gangway in wood is placed. We’ll have another look on Sunday.
