I asked Catherine for toilet paper and she handed me money like she is so rich she wipes her butt with it. The band was playing and she thought I was asking for money for a round of drinks.

We were very happy with our decision as the heat hit us like a brick wall when ...
... but Kim and I were both a little disappointed. We had been told stories of pods of hundreds of dolphins that usually greet the boats on the way back, but unfortunately that didn't happen for us today. It had still been a once in a lifetime experience to see a Blue Whale in the flesh.
When we got back to the hotel, we went down to the beach and had some noodles for lunch. I then proceeded to spend most of ...
