Around the World in 80 Days
Day 71: 4 December
The only jarring note in all of this is the mention of Le Havre. Both Passepartout and myself were under the impression that next Sunday the Leda Maersk would be at Felixstowe. Ah, no . . . that's the next day.
Over a breakfast of yoghurt, coffee, eggs, bacon, and thick rich white bread baked on board by a German chef, we discuss the implications of the Le Havre delay, and various alternatives are proposed, ranging from catching the Le Havre-Southampton ferry, to a more tele-worthy ship-to-ship transfer at the mouth of the Thames and a launch up to Westminster Pier. No one feels we should waste time on the French coast.
