I have a confession to make. The photo in my first post about Maximilien and Emmanuel Berque is not quite true to life. I trimmed Emmanuel’s figure just a tiny bit. Just look at the pair of them now. You can hardly believe it’s the same people.
Living on simple rations in a cramped space, in an emotional state that is a mix of sheer delight and carefully controlled fear, they have lost their lethargy. They look and act ten years younger.
In a week or so, weather permitting, they will leave their Canary Islands paradise and head out into the Atlantic. We wish them fair winds.
