Monday June 2 – Day of departure
Shitty night’s sleep and woke up at 7:30 to catch some more rays and snorkin before our 2:45pm flight. We avoided sunscreen that morning and I got a little burnt. Quick lunch at the hotel restaurant and then the $50 US drive back to the airport. Finished my book on the flight to Miami. There were tons of people in matching Christian t-shirts on the flight – they were returning from a mission trip to Honduras. Also, a few Eagle scouts on the flight as well. I figured we wouldn’t crash because of all the Christians that undoubtedly prayed for a safe return home, but if we did, the eagle scouts would save us. Back in Nashville at 11:45 pm. Dad picked us up. We were happy to see Helen, Schminkey and Baltimore but sad to be home.
A few observations:
-Despite the drug dealer on the beach, we felt relatively safe there.
-Food was expensive
-Sad we didn’t see monkeys
-We love snorkin
-Me & Rollum are good travel companions. We don’t get on each other’s nerves and we like to be around each other. Good qualities to have in a spouse.
-Despite the above statements, Rollum gets really annoyed when I take pictures.
-Life of Pi was a really good book, and I should really read more (instead of playing my Nintendo game boy)
-I love vacations and the fact that you don’t have to worry about anything.
-Lots of British people there. We hardly encountered other Americans. A little British boy was running around singing “Hit me baby one more time” and later exclaimed, “My trousers are wet!”
-Rum is sickeningly sweet and I don’t think I like it very much.
-I love plantain chips, but I hate bananas. Do plantains taste like bananas? Never had a real plantain.
-More pictures on flickr if you care to look (if you become a "contact" of mine on flickr, you'll have access to more shots. ooh, enticing!)
