I walked some more, and it was really, really hot by now... It was like the seventh circle of hell out there. I tried to walk on the side of the road with the shade, but it was hot in the shade too...

I believe this place was called the rund market... I guess because the building was "rund" which I can only assume means round... I think they speak some sort of European language here. I heard some speaking English too.

There are mostly a lot of clothing stores, jewelry stores, and a bunch of stuff I either don't need, can't afford, or don't have room in my luggage to bring back...

I had made it all the way around to the other side of the floating bridge now... This is where the "love heart" sculpture is... Maybe that's not the name of it, but it's where couples put locks on the sculpture to signify their love... Nobody loves me, so I didn't bring a lock...

By this time, it was around 3:00, and the restaurants that I had planned on going to didn't open until 6:00... They were also another mile or two further than I had already been. I also didn't have anything to do to pass the time until then, except for walk around some more in this oppressing heat... I just started walking back towards the ship... I hadn't had anything to eat since breakfast, and at this time of day, there's nothing opened on the ship but Guy's burgers and pizza... I didn't really want either of those particularly... I did want to try one of the lobster rolls from the seafood shack, but they didn't open till 5:00... When I got back, I changed my shirt, which was drenched in sweat. I went down and sat near the Alchemy Bar and just started typing and uploading pictures...

 

Finally, it was 5:00, and I could get my lobster roll...

I really, really hate how the cc website just decides sometimes to just place the text in the middle of the pictures, and not at the top, as I intended it to be... Anyhoo, one of the frustrations of doing this... Just put the dang text at the top of the page where I started the paragraph, and the pictures below right where I put them...

Back to the lobster roll... It was pretty good, but maybe not $14 including automatic tip good... Then again, I was more satisfied with that than one of the drinks I paid $22 for in Miami the other night...

 

The photo I took before getting back on the ship...

Happy birthday Sid!

 

So what are your thoughts on the Chef's Table ... worth it or no?

It's more of an experience than a huge meal... Sometimes it seems like they're trying a bit too hard with the presentation...
