by continuing on our voyage it meant that we would have to find another port which would allow us in without a fine. that port was CAPURGANA, a small colonial town which up until five years ago was TOO DANGEROUS for tourists due to the guerilla warfare. the closed border preserved the town and its originality from modern day changes. paved roads, cars, etc.
eight days at sea and we were ready for land. personal space. and SHOWERS. walking through the narrow cobblestone streets we still had our sea legs. every time you stood still or sat down you could still feel the motion of the ocean and things would sway for a few seconds. Scotty and i spent our twenty four hours there eating, showering and sleeping. it was GLORIOUS.
