Happy Thanksgiving from Mexico

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!
As I think back on the past year I have so much to be thankful for. There is the usually stuff, my family, my kids, my health, the fact that I am on perpetual vacation, but this year there are a few other things. I fell in love with a wonderful woman and her family, I was able to untie the dock lines and begin a major sailing adventure and while on this adventure God has blessed me with such a safe and problem free beginning.
Soooo where do you have Thanksgiving dinner while living in a third world country? We could cook up a turkey in our small propane oven, but I think it would probably have to be a baby turkey and even then I'm afraid it would probably take until Christmas to be fully cooked. We could forgo the turkey and have something else....but then I'm afraid that I might not be able to take my traditional Thanksgiving nap after pigging out on turkey. Lucky for us we just happen to be in a resort that caters to gringos and they have arranged a Holiday meal for the poor unfortunate cruisers that are basking in the sun away from their loved ones. So once again I ask you not to feel to sorry for us, we plan on going to the pool or the beach for awhile then hop on a Pulmania (open air taxi, see pic) and head over to the cruiser feast for dinner and drinks. There is one question that I am having some trouble with; do I have to wear long pants and shoes to the dinner?
