Up at a reasonable time today as it is Formula 1 qualifying day! We leave the apartment about 9:30 and head up to the Convention Centre where they are running a shuttle service to the track, cost $10 each which we thought was a bit steep but cheaper than the $200 they wanted for parking at the track!

The boots are on their way to Kirkland now. Let's see if they pick Shilpa.
... the ocean may distract us from updating the blog, while poor wi-fi connectivity may prevent it all together. Needless, Holly and I need to document these memories in order to energize our future working selves so we can go on another vacation together.
