evening singing and dancing for the guests and then I went down to the crew bar to check out the action. I think close to all 400 crew members were down in that room smaller than a small NYC apartment. There were people, beer and cigarettes on every surface in there. After saying my "Happy New Year"s to everyone, being stepped on and spilled on, I decided to call it a night. Now I realize I'm way behind on my blog and have so much to add!
having so we spent Christmas at sea. Margaret, Jonathan, George and I got
together on Christmas morning and exchanged gifts. Then we all went to the staff mess and had breakfast together. From there I had a pretty full day of work so it all went by kind of fast.
Maputo, Mozambique. It's always fun to try and figure out which language people are going to speak and which currency to use. It Maputo they speak Portuguese and they have their own money called the Mozambique New Medico, I think. There wasn't too much to see in the city but it was better than staying on the ship doing nothing.
rehearsing for NYE so Jonathan and I decided to hike up to the top of this nearby cliff that overlooked the ocean. This was kind of an unexpected, last minute decision and flip flops don't make the best hiking footwear. By the time we got to the top the space between my toes was on fire. I ended up taking some giant leaves and wrapping them around the middle of my flip flop and it really did make it better.
happy and prosperous New Year. May all your dreams (and hopefully mine) come true!
