... but for someone like me who suffers with acute travelbug what exactly lies over the hill is more interesting.
The following days were spent exploring a little further along the coast northward. Arising quite early did not entice me to exercise myself, it gave me the chance to try to get my brain into some kind of order with crossword or some of the numerous number games which fill the centers of newspapers. Even as early risers the availability ...
... The baby is fooling around in one of them-jumping and stuff . Really cute! Be prepared to need your Kleenexes LOL.
On this trip I also saw Los Giganticos, or the giant cliffs. They do sort of look like giants and thusly have each been named desperately. I cannot describe to you the beauty of that Island-but there are lots of videos of that too. So ... pop some popcorn and be prepared to watch.
Aren't you glad this isn't the ...
... lime green Opel Corsa that we christened "El Ray". This turned out to be a great decision because we not only had a blast cruising all over the island but it was also SO nice not to have to rely on buses and taxis and have everything scheduled just so to be able to get around. Plus we just looked cool :). The day after we arrived we went for a drive down to tourist central: Playa de las Americas. THIS is the place to be as an overweight drunken tourist who just spends their ...
... we made a day of walking through the city and wound our way back to the dock. I took tons of pictures to show you how beautiful this city is but all with cell phone. Hard to believe I walked off ship without my camera!

I could not believe it… we were only 10 miles short. 10 miles!! So we’ve done a total of 99,990 nautical miles and will have to wait until our next cruise to reach our milestone. :-(

Un hotel pur si simplu incantator, foarte luxos. Arata ca un muzeu, fiind o adevarata placere sa ii descoperi camerele frumos decorate, cu mobilier de cea mai buna calitate. De pe terasa camerei (care era imensa) aveam o priveliste superba asupra oceanului. Desi este unul dintre hotelurile scumpe, merita toti banii. Eu m-am simtit ca in paradis!
