A Week in Pictures

I don't have too many pictures yet, but I wanted to go ahead and post the ones I have taken so far. I don't have any of my cabin because my bedding hasn't arrived yet (I shipped it from Texas), so I'm waiting until I can make it cute before I take any pictures. Also, we have to be really cautious about taking pictures of the local people around town. (Would I want someone driving through my hometown and snapping photos of me without my permission?) So, I'll try to post some pictures of the city eventually, but it may be little while before I have those.

Jamie, Kelly, and I in front of the ship

The cafeteria (The food is really good here, and surprisingly, I probably eat more fruits and veggies than I did at home!)

My favorite sign...located just outside of the community bathroom where I shower every morning.

We got off of the ship for about three hours last weekend to see El Dorado Beach. There was a side for paying visitors and a side for locals. It only cost $3 to get in the "beach club" side, but you could definitely tell the difference.

Most smaller boats look just like this.

Local fishermen

The non-paying side...notice the trash?

And there's the pile! The water smelled really bad. I'm guessing it was polluted from all the garbage. Don't worry, Mom, I didn't swim. :)

That's all for now...more to come soon!
