Holy shit, kids! By the end of this cruise, I will have set foot on six continents! I mean, tecccchhhhnically, I won't have spent a night on any of them, so I'm not clear on whether it counts. I'll decide later. But for now, yowza!
While I loved exploring Fuerte Amador, I do kind of wish I'd hit the Embera Village with Connor and Jess. The description got me pissed off too, which was why I decided not to go—I had enough of that preciousness in South Africa a few years ago—but cities become more and more alike over time. I wouldn't mind seeing it with a critical eye (yeah, like I can help having a critical eye—a post on my critical eye coming soon). Still, I'd never been to Panama (or Colombia, for that matter), and enjoyed hitting up the local cuisine and the *excellent* clothing shop that Sumara and Meridith unearthed. I also got a pair of earrings for my mother. I've always bought gifts for my friends and family while travelling; it's neat to consider the variety of places and experiences they'll come from now.
We've been cruising the Pacific for a coupla days. I'm eager to get to Mexico, where I've also never been; I've been going around saying "Acapulco" over and over, just because it's a fun word to say. It's driving the others crazy. Except for Tali and Bea. Sometimes I think I'm actually four.
I'm gonna go for a swim; I don't really feel like blogging. More anon!
