So long Charleston!

Today was our last day in Charleston. The week here has delivered great weather and nice people and today was no exception.

My day started with preparing the breakfast though I was backis, witch means you work in the kitchen. When you work in the kitchen you wake up at 6:00 am and prepare breakfast for the whole boat; porridge, eggs, coffee, juice and sandwiches. After the morning gathering we were pretty tired so we decided to take a nap before we went out to finish off the week in Charleston. At 10 we took a bus to the outlet outside of Charleston. It´s called tanger outlets and you ride the bus for 40 minutes and then arrive at a big mall where you can find clothes and shoes at bargains prices. We bought some different clothes and ate at a Mexican restaurant, which was great! After lunch we went to Wal-Mart to stock up with drinks and candy for the Atlantic crossing. We bought a-lot because we have heard that everything is really expensive at Bermuda, so the candy had to be enough all the way to the Azores.

We came back to the boat just before dinner and we ate a delicious salmon with potatoes. After dinner some classmates and I went out to do some last minute interview with the locals. I talked to people about the gun laws and met an old couple from Ohio, which was very nice. We talked about the gun laws and it was interesting. At the end the woman turned out to be a politician in the council-room in Ohio, so she knew about the topic.
