We were relieved when the ship moved out to the open sea again where it was much cooler en route to our next port, Tanga. At Tanga I said farewell to my Swiss cabin mate. There a Mr. Saupe came on board to greet me. He was our company’s agent in Tanga. A very kind and friendly gentleman, he took me to his home for supper.
