Aside from physically demanding jobs due to frequent conduct of ship-to-ship operations, the hot weather here in offshore Lome is one of the major difficulties to endure.
In March and April, the average maximum temperatures were 32 and 31 degrees Celsius. Good thing, it toppled more to 30 degrees Celsius this May.
Outwardly, it’s summer season and to beat the heat, we should go swimming!
However, neither beach nor open-sea swimming is permitted. Hence, we put-up this mini swimming pool on port bridge wing of the ship and played like kids on it!
