A Chinese View Of the Thames

If you are still interested in the giant container cranes that have just arrived near Stanford-le-Hope in Essex , click on the link below for a news report from the People’s Daily Online.

It would be nice to think that this port will make Essex famous worldwide – but the Chinese report calls the location¬† “East London”.

    By coincidence , I met a German ship’s captain today who happened to see the cranes being loaded in China. Looking “like dinosaurs” he said. It’s quite a slow and tricky operation to get them loaded and unloaded , it involves rollers, I think. Especially tricky when you have strong tides, as on the Thames.
