Maldives Memories: The Dhoni

We've been back home for awhile and only now learned (through reading a review) that the resort vessel providing transport between the islands at the Conrad Maldives is a dhoni, a traditional multi-purpose boat. One source describes it as a 'strong symbol of nationalism in a country which is mostly dominated by vast bodies of water.'

Watching the captain steer the tiller with his foot never failed to fascinate us.
