Iguazu, Evita, and interesting sculptures...
Perhaps you noticed that I have not been writing in my blog
since October 22. Flu is the reason. And before you have to ask, no I did not
have a flu shot; I have never (nor has
Randy) before had the flu and my general philosophy is, If it ain’t broke, don’t...

Pictures from Ballestas Island, best sh&, uh, guano in the world!...*
 These are pictures from Ballestas Island that I could post before using the ship's internet. Now that we are in port in Coquimbo, I can use my skyroam hotspot which has much better internet access. Pinguino de Humboldt, or Humboldt Penguins are everywhere ...

Ballestas Island has the best sh*, uh, guano in the world…*
We are in the middle of six days of not having a sea day and
we are, in a word, pooped. Which has nothing (much) to do with the title. Beautiful cathedral in Trujillo, Peru. The colors are even more vivid than this in real life. In my previous post I said w...

What is palm ivory, vegetable ivory, corozzo, coquille, palmivoor, steinnuss and binroji?...
Pictures are at the end as I'm having trouble posting them. I'll try to put captions on them but having trouble with that as well. Manta, the tuna capital of South America. Who knew? Who
cares? The fishermen of Manta, I presume. They catch some astronomical...

How do you know it's a male howler monkey (from a distance)...
Catching up, again… Lost my skyroam connection anchored off Panama City so no photos yet. Here we are, about seven days after the last time I wrote. So
little time, so many things to do! This ship actually has a lot less going on than the other
ships we’ve ...

Chacchoben: where on earth are Pam & Randy now?
If you go to Mexico, you really must see some of the
gorgeous Mayan ruins. Chacchoben (pronounced Chak-CHO-ben), place of the red corn , is one of those
and the one closest to the Costa Maya port where we docked for about 14 hours.
Of course there is only a...

I SO prefer the hot and dry heat of Arizona!...
So, catching up.  Orlando in the summer is hot and rainy.
Miami in the summer is hot and rainy. Key West in the summer is hot and… humid.
I mean HUMID! We did the Old Town Trolley HOHO (hop on, hop off—you’ll probably
hear me talk about HOHO a lot in the co...

Wide open spaces, i.e., Texas…
I finally feel as if we are on vacation! Belfor and USAA
will finish fixing the house while we are gone, the AZADV meeting is over (for
me, anyway; it actually continued another two days after I left yesterday), and
we are on our way to Florida (actually we...

Checklist, checklist, who has the checklist?
It’s been a long time since I wrote anything, so I thought I
should, as my grandmother—or maybe it was my mother or a cousin, well,
