Nice ship, name could be better

This is the curiously named HHL Mississippi (HHL Duluth makes much more sense). It is here today discharging 6 transformers built in Germany, picked up by the ship in Antwerp and going from here to Alberta by rail.  So the ship is misnamed but the captain hails from Petrozavodsk, Russia, which is a sister city to Duluth. Many Duluth residents have visited his city. When he told me that, I was all set to make a bunch of calls and have a party but he told me the ship should be departing tonight. He may be back in a couple months with more transformers and I will be sure to have a welcoming party ready. He did not want me to take his picture but he would be happy to meet sister city people, and maybe even a reporter or two if he gets back in town.
