This is really wierd...I've been here for about 2 weeks and I'm NOT getting bored. Sunday I was on a mission to see where I could hook up to the Charger/Raider game. I thought I was set up in a nice restaurant in Barra when in walked this ex-pat gringo with a louder voice than me and I was not about to get into an argument about which game we were going to watch(he wanted the Dallas/Redskins game). So I jumped the bus to Melaque to find a bar/restaurant that hand the game on. Let me back up a moment...I threw my back out the day before getting water in jerry jugs(oh the plight of a cruiser) and it was difficult walking all over the town to find TV. Finally I came across a restaurant owned by a Canadien and he had Canadien TV that was playing my game in the US. So I settled in to watch the whole game and gave up on going to an AA meeting in Melaque at 5pm(Yes, I'm an alcoholic, but non-practising). Today after filling in the voids with epoxy(Susan, I have 3 brands of epoxy and cloth and filler..3 types) I had to quit because I was breaking a sweat and go into town to check out the bowl games. Had a nice dinner with boat friends from Tucson/San Diego and stopped by for an ice cream. Then I could'nt walk past the french bakers deli without buying 2 almond croissants and finishing them off with a cup of coffee on the boat. I signed up with Skype today and am in the checking it out stages...so far so good. The pic gallery is not up yet to upload pics, but as soon as it is I will post photos.
