We are rocking and rolling (literally).

Last night was a sleepless nice for the majority of the Africa Mercy crew. Not because we are anticipating our arrival in Tenerife. Not because we are excited for Christmas. Not because we are stressed out about our work.

The ship has encountered swells which have caused a fast and consistent rolling of the ship from side to side. At times, we've puckered up and down.

When you are being tossed from side to side in your bed, your drawers keep flying open, and your roof and walls sound like they are going to bust open, it is cause for a sleepless night. The general consensus is most were up every hour. This morning, the deck crew visited each department, re-securing everything.

A swell takes out my friends and moves my chair. This is why I've had to hold onto my desk for most of the day.

If you look carefully, you can see the water moving in my water bottle.

The rocking boat glides me across the office.
