Poptart - Sorry you are having a bad day.
Last night we ate at the Brazilian restaurant. They fill you up on chicken, sausage, ribs, flank steak, pork loin and probably some others before they get to the good steak and lamb chop. Heard them tell the other table (after they were finished) that you can refuse any meat. I did skip the ribs and pork loan. When I skipped the ribs and pork loin I said I was waiting for the good meat. Plus I did not eat all the meat they gave me. Then they played loud music and a female dancer came out and asked people to dance with her. This happened about 4 times while we were eating.
Today we are at Cozumel and it is raining. Feel sorry for all the beach people. I got off and looked at some of the shops and bought a few things. I went into some of the silver jewelry shops. I was looking at a large purple stone ring. Asked the price and they said normally $400 and then got it down to something. When he said it was tanzanite I said, no it is glass. If it was tanzanite it would be in a case and walked out.
Another shop I was looking at a dichroic ring. He quoted a price and said it was opal. I said no, it was dichroic glass and walked out. I went to Cinco de Soles they didn't have colorful rings, but found some different earrings and a plain diamond cut silver band so got them.
When I put my stuff through the scanner, the guy asked if I had candles. I said no. He went through my stuff and showed me candles. Cinco de Soles had given me a free item which I thought was just shot glasses, but they were shot glasses with a candle in them. I could not understand the security guy. I thought he was going to put me in jail. He explained how for safety reasons I can't take candles onboard. I said fine. Then he kept trying to tell me something else that I really didn't understand. I think he wanted my name to mark them and then I could pick them up at the back of the ship on the last day. I just kept telling him that they were free, I didn't know they were candles and he could keep them. He finally kept them.
Tonight we are going to try to get into Blue Planet if they have space. It is booked.
I have to pack today because tomorrow is a day full of seminars and classes and it is the last day.
