... lights, seriously? Again? Grrrrrr police! To cut a long story short, also my Spanish isn't good enough to decipher exactly what was said, the guy said I ran a red stop light. It was actually Amber and flashing when I crossed so after our last experience with the police Kike protested.

Not only is there so much rubbish down where we were staying, but you can't relax without a hawker hassling you to buy the ****** souvenirs every minute. It gets old pretty quickly!

No port stops today as we are heading to Guatamala, which takes two nights and two days sailing to arrive. The waters are very calm and the sailing very smooth. We are both very relaxed and Johnny is enjoying the variety of foods on board.
