Ziemia Lodzka bound for Spain

The Polish flagged Ziemia Lodzka was built in 1992 in Turkey but became the Lake Champlain before leaving the shipyard. In 2003, it went back to being the Ziemia Lodzka. Still with that name, the ship’s Polish crew has been loading the cargo holds with spring wheat over the last two days. They should be taking the ship under the Lift Bridge later today as they head for Spain to deliver their cargo.
