Day 49: Rhodes to Limassol
Arrival at Limassol is protracted. We sit in one of the ship's reception areas, which is fitted out in a barren blend of vinyl, chrome and plastic, and wait over an hour for the disembarking queue to clear. This is followed by another half-hour's wait on the quayside in airless, muggy heat until we are allowed to begin unloading our equipment.
Times such as these are the low points of the journey. None of us is much refreshed after a night on the boat, and after thirty-two days of filming in the last five weeks and four national frontiers crossed in the last seven days alone we are all expending energy much faster than we can replace it.
