It's Tuesday, Where Are You?
Today I am in 1880s India and the Ibis has just docked in Calcutta. The Ibis is a former slaver (slave ship) that is to be refurbished as a transport for opium to China. I've just had to walk through an opium manufacturing facility and was sickened by much of what I saw. I don't know what the future holds, but I suspect it will have something to do with a vision I had of a large two-masted schooner. (Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh)
