Monday, March 1, 2010 – Montevideo, Uruguay
We got up when our breakfast arrived. Land came in view just after breakfast. Weather looks clear. I was planning on shopping on shore but everything is closed for the inauguration of the new President in Uruguay. So we went out and wandered for a while and let Noel make up our room. Then we came back to our room and I decided to go ashore to see if anything was available. I found an Internet café and discovered that CANADA WON GOLD MEDAL and beat the Yanks 3-2 in hockey – after all, it is our game. (Both men and women have gold.) We went to the Garden Café and had lunch, then back to our cabin and read and then both of us had naps. Just after 5pm and we’re on our way. We went to the shops where we bought a few more necessities and Mom bought cigarettes. On our way back to our cabin we met Karen and Audrey and joined them for dinner at the Seven Seas dining room. Then we went back to our cabin. Mom finished reading the book I wrote for the 3-day novel contest. (Her words: Quite exciting and it grabbed your interest right to the end.) Then we went to bed.
