[Photo Journal] Shipbuilding in Mahibadhoo Maldives

Myra here.

We are excited to share photographs every Tuesday from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Shipbuilding in Mahibadhoo, Maldives

One of the things that we discovered while in Mahibadhoo is that the place thrives on shipbuilding as one of its many industries. During our island tour, with the fabulous Mazin of Amazing Noovilu Guesthouse as our guide, we get to see the craftsmanship and artistry of the people from the island.

We also had the good fortune of seeing the inside of this huge cruise ship that is a work in progress. Apparently, the making of this ship has already cost millions of dollars and would most likely be done in the next three years or so. Truth be told, it was just my husband who took the photographs as I was too much of a scaredy-cat to climb up the rickety steps to see what’s found inside.

I can’t wait to see what this would look like once it is finished.
