Gurkha Farewell Lunch...

Gurkhas are the highly-trained Nepalese soldiers who protect the ship day and night. Along with the Ship Security Officer, they form the Security Team of the Africa Mercy. And yet despite being former soldiers, they are the most amazing, gentle-spirited people you could ever hope to meet. Our Gurkhas are also wonderful cooks and serve the crew Nepalese food usually once every sail. This past weekend they blessed Candace and I by giving us a lovely farewell lunch. It was delicious - thank you Gurkhas!

Hmmm, delicious!

Sign of a good meal - empty plate and a content Murray!
Candace was very excited about Gurkha food too!
