We did that need to be done
One more time, the good ship schooner brig Tres Hombres came back in Amsterdam.

Tea, catmint and 4000 tuna cans from Azores.
Aloe Vera from Bonaire and chocolate from Grenade.
Transported by sail, loaded and unloaded by hands.
In Amsterdam, a lot of friends came to help unload the cargo.
