Don Questo

Every year Mustafa embarks for 6 months on board the Don Questo from Port Sudan. This former oceanographic ship, converted into a scuba diving cruise ship, welcomes about ten divers every week to discover the remarkable sites off the Sudanese coast. Mustafa is the chef. He takes care of supplies and manages 3 crew members. The sun has just set. Mustafa ends his evening prayer and enters the kitchen to finish preparing the fresh fish caught the night before by his teammates. Mustafa knows how to make divers happy. It's 8pm. In the distance we can already hear the sound of the zodiac returning after the last night dive on the site of the former Cousteau base. The table is set and the dinner bell will soon ring for the pleasure of all.
