The USS Lake Erie is in Hong Kong today, continuing it’s first patrol in five years as part of our response to North Korean missile testing. The Lake Erie has been back in the states for a number of years doing some anti-missile testing, but now it is here in Hong Kong giving the crew a taste of the city.
Lodbrog is part of the Alcatel Submarine network of cable ships. It’s funny that it is visiting today as just this week some fisherman stole (or tried to steal) 300 yards of cable from of all places, Central Hong Kong (like it wouldn’t be noticed). Police boats nabbed them pretty quickly (by the way, there are over 130 Hong Kong police boats). I found a blog of a sailor on the Lodbrog. I guess he is the Lodbrog blogger.]]>
