5. The ship came in

The container vessel "OOCL Luxembourg", sailing under the flag of Hong Kong, China, and named after the cozy European capital just 60 miles north of where I was born, has arrived in Laemg Chabang, the big container harbor south of Bangkok, Gulf of Thailand. 

This morning I visited the downtown offices of Vanguard International, the shipping company, to pay the D/O fees ($150) and to get the proper paperwork.

Here are some specs of the ship:

Gross Tonnage: 8,9097 tons
DeadWeight: 99,654
Length x Breadth: 322.97m x 43.00m
Year Built: 2010

There is an interesting website which allows the live tracking of ships currently sailing the oceans. The site shows Laemg Chabang as a port for "OOCL Luxembourg", and was updated 5 minutes ago.
