A Ship Will Not Come

-
Switzerland is a seafaring nation and at home on the oceans. So much seems proven at least by film footage taken on the voyages of the “MS Basilea” in the 1950s and '60s. Besides cargo loads of coffee or a herd of water buffalo, the images also document strange occurrences on land: In Massawa an aging emperor descends from a Russian warship. Or the Swiss crew witness a parade in the Chinese port city of Dalian in the days of the Cultural Revolution.
