    The one thing that sticks in my mind regarding that trip was, for the first time, that a “linen count” was conducted prior to arrival. When I asked why, it was explained to me that locals would come aboard and exchange services for any cotton clothing or bedsheets. No need for further explanation. I remember laughing at the activity going on along the working alleyway. Picture it, cabin to cabin, pulling a pillowcase behind that was getting fuller by the cabin.
