Greetings from Cozumel Mexico

Having a great cruise and taking lots of video and photos.

Have been on two Mayan ruins tours - one to Choccehben in Costa Maya and the other yesterday to Altun Hu in Belize - both are quite different and provide a good insite in this long lost history.

The ship is great and our little meet and greet attracted most of the 30 odd people who say they were coming - Frank and Cathy had some fridge magnets for all of us to add to our collection.

Will have lots of photos to add at a later date - Internet is only $2.00 an hour so I am getting caught up with the email and blogs and political forums.

Also time for lunch - could go back onto the ship but make try something onshore and then its time for a few cheap Mexican beers before heading back to the ship and the sail back to NOLA

Will be home around supper time on Wednesday.

Well it is just about time to say goodbye to the Big Easy for a week - checking out of the hotel which is pictured above in a few minutes and heading for the port - that one of the ships that was there yesterday but you should get the idea.

On my return in a week it will be straight to Amtrak and the train ride home.

Hope to do a couple of written updates - probably no images as they take time to upload and ship's internet is expensive - otherwise
