    Hi karlis! Congratulations, you made it!
    We met you while sailing from Sri Lanka to Maldives. We are now in the Red Sea. Are you going this way?

    Kārli, kā klājas? Vai okeāna sajūtas izgaisušas?
    Ļoti gribētos zināt, kas notiek ar laivu?
    Vai ir cerības atgūt, jeb varbūt jau laiva ir mājā.
    Kā ar tālāko ceļu pāri Āfrikas kontinentam?
    Ļoti grribētos, kas,kur un kā.
