I finished my walk-around of the ship, which included every deck, and the wharf, and extended to the office of Zhen Zheng, the Harbor Master, an old friend. As soon as I entered the office, he greeted me with great enthusiasm, as he did every time we arrived at Phu Quoc.
Zhen Zheng, a Chinese National, who had moved to Vietnam with his new bride thirty years ago, suspected there was more to the Celestial Navigator than just another tramp freighter sailing the world. In fact, he knew there was more, he just couldn’t figure out what it was, and he was too polite to ask.
