We were up late this morning and Janet had to run to get to Granma as we had promised her we would be ready to assist her to prep for an 0800 breakfast.

The water around the island is very calm--like BBL. Great! On the way over, we saw ...
Today was my first day of classes! Well actually I only had one class today but I went to other classes!! I started off the day meeting two of my friends right outside of the city for breakfast. Since the two of them had an early class right near the city, my other friend and I decided it would be a nice idea to walk and meet them for breakfast!! We ended up meeting at the Wholy Grain, which was ...
