Did not think I was going to post again for a bit until yesterday (3/18/18 about 10:45am) when I realized that we were sailing through one of only a very few unique spots on the Earth where you can stand on the deck of a ship and just by turning your head see two different continents at the same moment.
We were sailing through Bab e Mandeb, the waterway that connects the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden. The strait is only about 20 miles wide and standing on deck 10 I was able to turn my head to the left and see a chunk of Africa (this chunk was part of Djibouti) and turning to the right see Asia (part of Yemen).
It was hazy so the pieces of land were not clear and even dehaze in editing could not bring them out clearly. But, they were still there and you could make them out with the naked eye. (From the shape and what we could see they are both islands but no matter as they are parts of the two different continents.)
I’ll leave it as an exercise for the reader to determine what other places on Earth will allow you to do this from a ship but, as a hint, we’ll be sailing through two more of them on this trip and maybe a third depending on the exact dividing line between North and South America.
