where I live...

Well, it's high time I show you around the Africa Mercy... for a more complete tour, go to www.youtube.com/mercyships and search for the 10-minute video. (Sorry I can't give you the exact link, I'm not allowed to get on youtube on board the ship... it chews up bandwith on the ship's satellite connection)

So... you walk up the gangway and into reception on Deck 5 (pics later)... down the big red flight of stairs (red's in the bow, blue stairs in the aft) and onto Deck 3. This is what you see when you come down the stairs. Deck 3 houses the entire hospital and the bow is full of cabins.
There are two hallways per deck, one on either side of the picture. So, if you take the left hallway, and keep going towards the bow, you come to the crew nurse's and crew physician's offices, the off-ship dental team's office, and this lovely door to the cabin part of Deck 3. Ward E is up near the cabins.. it's used for eye surgery patients.
Just past the door on the left side of the hallway you'll see my cabin door. Yesterday the Hospitatlity dept put a NCM notice ("notification of new crew member") on our door... we're getting our 6th roommate this weekend.

The halls look like this... metal bulkheads... gotta love using magnets to hang everything!!!! The emergency fire team 3 muster station is right outside my door.. :-)

And this incredibly confusing drawing shows where I live

I'll try to post pictures of my actual cabin... for now, just know it's very small and not a girl's dream in term of closest storage... but it's home and quite comfy as long as you're not claustrophobic!

*getting lost is quite fun... the farthest away from your cabin you can be is 7 decks and 500'!*
