Much further south than the lands I'm used to. Much hotter, plants noticeably bigger, butterflies and moths seemed greater in number.
My expectation was high after such a perfect outward crossing. This time were on a swift boat, a modern catamaran. I was extremely disappointed - only two outdoor areas, both at the rear, both small, both loud engine noise, both being used for smoking! Tall bars disturbing the view, engine fumes hazing binocular vision, access forbidden during departure and arrival. There were birds of course but I was mostly too frustrated to persevere with looking. One thing I saw well was a helicopter, hovering low by another boat.
