Today I am Kusadasi, Turkey. I was able to go ashore today but this city is
not my fav. It looks like the place where Aladdin lived with all the vendors
trying to bargain with you. It does have a Starbucks though! I didn’t go in
because I think I would feel bad about myself if I did that.
Yesterday we were in Naufplion, Greece but I wasn’t able to get off the ship.
I did take a couple pictures from the sun deck though.
Last night we did “Showstoppers” which is all Broadway music. When I was
rehearsing it I felt so silly and campy but when we did it for the audience last
night they gave us a standing “O”, which is saying a lot considering most of
them walk with canes and hip replacements. I’ll try to remember and take
pictures of my costumes next time we do a show. Also, people keep approaching me to ask me if this is my real hair. What I want to say is, do people generally walk about without their own hair? Is that your real hair? What if this wasn’t my real hair? Now you’ve just pointed out that I’m bald in a crowd of people! But usually I just say, “yes.”
It’s hard to believe this is the last day of the cruise! I definitely feel
like I just got on board, but when I think back on everything that’s happened in the last 2 weeks I feel like it’s been a lifetime. I also discovered Meclizine
which is an anti-seasickness medication that they give out like candy. It works like a charm. I’ve also heard getting drunk helps you to not feel the rocking so much but I think that should be reserved for last resorts.
Ciao for now!
