April 1, 2014 – Aboard Regatta headed to Fortaleza, Brazil
This morning we had a Portuguese lesson. Neither Patsy nor I are very good at languages, Elly and Alan are good. After the lesson, we had lunch. Patsy went to sit in the sun on the pool deck. I sat on the veranda and read.
Alan and Elly had dinner in the Toscana while Patsy, Guto and I had dinner in the Grand Dining Room. One of the appetizers was escargot so you know what I had! It was a fun meal because we elected to share a table. Dave and Joyce Carlson were seated at our table as well as Art and Cathy from Vancouver, Peter from Giessen, Germany and another couple whose name and residence I’ve forgotten. We had a lively discussion ranging over a wide variety of topics including Brazilian politics, bird watching, hydroelectric plants, oil pipe lines and who knows what else. We were there when the room opened at 6:30, and we didn’t leave until almost 9:30 when it closed. A good time was had by all.
I edited yesterday’s pictures and called it a night.
