we overtook our truck somewhere over the atlantic which was on it´s way to halifax by boat. there we had to wait because the ferry had a delay for about 3 days. halifax has about 290.000 inhabitants and it seems the city is on a break-up because just everywhere you can see building cranes. for sure it does´t depend on the explosion of 1917 when a ship with 2oo tons of tnt and 2300 tons of explosive pikrin acid caught fire after a rather harmless damage with an other cargo ship. 1946 humans died in this strongest manmade explosion in the pre atomic age. ©n.g.
