    ... t been running due to choppy seas. Yesterday, in a fit of optimism, I made one last attempt at the latter, and booked a ticket on this morning's 9am tour.

    Unfortunately, I didn't get much sleep last night, since one of my dormmates was snoring like a 747 at takeoff. So my early morning wakeup was pretty painful. To make matters worse, I feel like I'm coming down with a cold. I don't know why every time I travel, I seem to catch a cold. Very ...

I met Hakim from NYC in the kitchen over coffee, sat in at dining room table and met Christianna and Christine (who thankfully lent me her plug converter because she was leaving today) a few minutes later.
