Second Day In Rio

Wednesday, 18 February 2015

Woke up this morning to another spectacular sunrise. I've been using that word a fair bit lately but there just aren't better words to describe it. There were very few people out on deck this morning. We enjoyed a simple breakfast then while Jenny attended an Ash-Wednesday Service I watched many of the departing passengers making their way through the Atrium area.

With all of US$5 worth of local currency to spend we went ashore and blew it on a Rio mug. Last of the big spenders. Lunch and then the afternoon movie. "Begin Again" didn't give away much in the title but while the dialogue was a bit difficult to follow at times it did keep us awake.

In a strange turn of events we were required to join the newly embarked passengers for the Emergency Stations Drill. Some people obviously didn't get the message and they had to repeat it just before we sailed.

Dinner with Mary and Donald in the dining room followed by the 'Welcome' show in the Theatre. A number by the 'singers and dancers', introduction to the cruise staff and a very funny guy from Canada named Scott Harris.

Clocks go back an hour tonight as we sail South towards Buenos Aires.

Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony

Sounds like a restful sort of day - probably something you were both ready for. Glad for the good weather.
