The "lift-up" series starts at Gioja Tauro with Pino. In his bar, we spent our last day. At noon we began with dark brown beer. From time to time Pino run to his food-storage-room to get some delicious things. A nice piece of ham, spicy cheese, few olives or nuts. Towards the evening we drunk wine and deeper in the night the whisky bottles became empty. Pinos wife already called several times he should come home. But we just noticed her, when she was standing next to us in the bar, screaming. She pulled Gerdas hair and kicked us out. Next morning the cargo ship left with the destination Mumbai. The photo series continues with the crew on the ship: the officer called "green joke", the Phillipinos, Oskar with his beautiful karaoke voice and the too big and heavy capitain.
