Animalcouriers have left the Greek island of Kos, heading for Bodrum in Turkey. The ferry has been laid on specially for us following yesterday’s cancellation.

The weather is calm, sunny and clear — everything a tourist (or a courier) could wish for.

We now have a pleasant little cruise ahead of us before entering the occasionally surreal world of Turkish bureaucracy.
