11.10.11 - Floating book store aboard Logos Hope

We made a trip to the Port Klang Cruise Centre to visit MV Logos Hope and its floating book store. The book store claimed to have more than 5000 titles. The journey was very long, around 1.5 hours away. Those in Penang were luckier, they didn't need to travel so far to see Logos Hope.

MV Logos Hope is operated by a German charitable organisation GBA ships e.V. and started operations in 2004. The ship had since travelled around the globe not only to spread the word of knowledge through books but also to carry out community projects, especially in third world countries.

The kids played while waiting for the doors to open at 10 am.

We had to walk a distance to the ship

See the 3 smaller boats up there?
We sat down for a short briefing before going to the bookstore

It's a pity we weren't allowed to tour the whole ship. That would have been more interesting. While walking back, outside the ship, we saw 2 children sitting on a swing on the top deck of the ship. S wanted to go back there to play, but we weren't allowed into that section at all. They must be the children of the volunteers aboard the ship.
