BOM BOM ISLAND, SÃO TOMÉ & PRINCIPE, AFRICA
Our Easter Sunrise Service was well attended by Protestants and Roman Catholics alike. We had separate services later in the afternoon with Holy Communion. It is good to be with folks who pause for worship in excitement of travel.
Our island port today was an island paradise. Crystal publishes a map for each port we visit – this is Bom Bom Island – for real! It is part of the 2nd smallest nation in Africa. “How'd ya like to spend Easter… on Bom Bom Island?”
The staff actually hid Easter eggs around the island, but it was just too hot here at the equator for anyone to wear the bunny costume! Happy Easter everyone.
