My crystal ball sees many bad hair days in the near future

The weather here has been beautiful-warm, sunny, bright blue skies. It IS just a tad humid, so by the time we finished breakfast, I could have passed for Albert Einstein’s older sister. I look scary, but the kids don’t care, however I suspect there won’t be many photos of me on this blog.

Today I continued my quest for the perfect wifi spot, and future volunteers, I found it! At the bar, sit on the FURTHEST seat to the right, with your right elbow pointing into the dining room. Believe it or not, a couple of seats over and at the round table, there is NO connectivity. (Phyllis, this is my gift to you.)

So, while the wifi cooperates, I’ll do a little photo uploading.

I’ve named the path to my room the “thigh master”. I took these on my way down to breakfast this morning:

Funny story. When I arrived Saturday night,it was quite late. Knowing I have a tendency to stomp, I was very careful to “tread lightly” so that I didn’t disturb the people in the room below. It wasn’t until the next morning that I realized the only thing below me was air, dirt,and grass!

These next steps remind me of the grand plaza at Caracol. When I ascend, I need to LIFT my leg to get to the next step.


One more turn, a few more steps, and I’ve made it to the flat land.

Not to worry, though. Anyone with mobility problems is assigned a flat-lander room.

And now the moment you’ve been waiting for–more kiddie photos.


I think little Dayna is a born model.

Michelle, not to worry. Precious’ foot is fine. She was moving around so much,it was hard to get a sharp photo. Little Yasmine still isn’t talking, but I almost got a smile out of her today, and we still have another week to go!



My wine is a callin me…tune in tomorrow for more beautiful faces.

I am intensely curious, with a spirit of adventure that is tempered by my very strong aversion to anything with potential to cause pain. I love travel, photography, reading, gardening, yoga, music and propelling myself through space (biking, dancing, walking, dancing while walking). I've never considered a lack of proficiency in any of the previous activities to be a hindrance, counting on abundant enthusiasm to make up for my shortcomings.

  1. Hair is over-rated…I’m glad you found your wi-fi connection, but I am more interested in the quality of red wine in St Lucia…


    1. Ah, I wish I hadn’t had my corkscrew confiscated in Bogota. It would have been nice to have abortlein my room. We go into town tomorrow. Perhaps Ai can find some box wine at a gas station!


  2. Hi Shelley,
    I did not get an email from you before you left but remembered I had saved the email from January. I did not get to read all the postings because I am leaving tomorrow and trying to get ready. I have an email account set up with the ship – If I don’t here from you, I call when I get back
    PS looks like you are having fun.
