There wasn't much to say about Montevideo Uruguay, Susan and I were a bit tired and a lot of the city just looked either similar to Brazil or Buenos Aires and/or there weren't a whole lot of grand and interesting things that the guide or the city really came a crossed to us.

There were a couple of nice viewpoints and we got some decent photos on the tour and probably the coolest sight of the day was an old government building all made of marble mostly.

Once we got back to the ship I had more fun after we had eaten and exchanged a bit of money for more pesos for this country.

We walked just outside the pier into the market area and did a bit of browsing and met a nice man and his family who were kind of pan handlers. Susan found a great Matte set for cheap there and we even almost purchased a handmade sheepskin leather rug for 70 bucks US but we would have had to go back to the boat to get our money which deemed time pressing for the boat left in 30 . . .

Our day started off early for our city tour of Buenos Aires Argentina. Getting on the bus, we had the most amazing tour guides who seemed to be really relaxed and less rushed than at Rio De Janiero.

Our first stop on this romantic day was the first cemetery in the city.

It was one of the most unique cemeteries I have ever seen and Evita was buried there. We took many photos of various sarcophagi and it was interesting because the caskets were in plain view in a few of them.

We had to wait in line to see Evita's family grave. But Evita herself was buried underground so that she may truly rest in peace.

There was a huge tree that I got a picture of outside of the graveyard and there were many professional dog walkers hanging out there with 4 to 7 dogs they were watching.

Next Susan and I went to the town center with the familiar pink government building of which the president helicopters into each day to work on time.

Right around the corner there was an amazing . . . Read More..

We had two days at sea and we spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool and other things.

I played a texsas holdem tournament and sadly I lost when I called someone with AA. God I was stupid to call his betting pattern. I should have known better.

Oh well

Things got worse after that because the waves got really bad and made Susan and I queasy.

Susan dry cleaned her dress for the formal night with the Captain and even started to get ready and I was in bed still in the fetal position because of the motion of the boat.

She also began to feel really dizzy and 20 minutes before we had to be somewhere I got up and said we arent going because I felt too dizzy. We got a little scared because we certainly didnt want the whole cruise to be sick.

But we ordered room service and I got up to get the door. The server didnt look well at all and was stumbling with our stuff in our room and nearly tripped and fell on Susan's suitcase and I recovered it and set it down.

Two seconds later I was sea . . . Read More..

The morning we had to unload the truck sitting in the parking lot, I rearranged the parking job and took up two handicap spots to perfectly lay the walk way very close to our stairs. Susan and I unloaded the 26 foot truck in about 3 hours and I lifted some crazy heavy things that day.

My neighbor Keith helped us out big time and helped me transfer our bed and dressers into our place. He was ripped and definitely could handle the weight. He and his wife Karen are awesome, new friends for sure!

I spent the rest of the day setting up tables, beds and breaking down boxes before our friend Tim came over.

That day when setting things up, Susan found a little creature who I knew was a current resident. A cockroach inside of the Dishwasher! She screamed really loudly and after I killed it with a pole and wiped it up I freaked her out a little bit too at some point after things died down when I was cleaning out the dishwasher.

I never told her of it when I initially saw it on the wall . . . Read More..

We miserably woke up at 7:30 ish and it was dark and we didn't want to meet up for our early excursion to the Sugar loaf Mountain. The ship had you meet in the large Theater to get your assigned cattle bus number for your stereotypical expensive drive through town to get your candid smiley photo in front of the sights.. smell any pessimism and sarcasm here?

I know it is a safe excursion for sure. But I had my doubts you get what you pay for with some of these. Most of the people paid for the "Best of Rio", that hit up the Corcovado (Christ The Redeemer Statue), The Sugar Loaf View as well as got a Brazillian lunch and tour of the Cathedral.

Susan and our tour group first got to the Cathedral fully modern and made of concrete and it was so huge and apparently it holds like 5000 people or more. It was pyramid shaped and had the most beautiful stained glass and a huge cross at the top. I took some pictures and videos of this and took a picture of our new friends from New . . . Read More..
