Of all the islands in the South Atlantic to hit…

Some time back, I wrote about this bizarre little island in the middle of nowhere in the Atlantic called, Tristan da Cunha. How middle of nowhere? 2,816km from the nearest port in South Africa nowhere, that’s where.

Bizarrely, when checking out their official site, I found out that the MS Olivia, a massive freighter ran aground yesterday at the island. It was carrying upwards of 75,300 tonnes of soybeans. Take a look at the photos though. I mean, I know it ran aground at 04:30, but still, how do you do that? They weren’t planning to dock at Tristan da Cuhna, yet somehow despite this thing we call radar, they managed to hit a freakin’ island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean! What a strange, strange places that is down there.
