Day 69–Tues., Mar. 15, 2011–At Sea

     After leaving Singapore we proceeded through the Malacca Strait towards India.  Malacca Strait is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world due to its geographical position.  All vessels from Europe, the Persian Gulf and India headed for Malaysia, Singapore and other Asian ports to the northeast pass through Malacca and Singapore Straits.

     Today was a typical sea day with the various Onboard Sports, speakers, activities, eating, and chorus.  Ray is in the finals for the Men’s Bowling Tournament.  The “sports” are so silly sometimes we just sit around and laugh at ourselves for doing them.  This afternoon we played Leap Frog.  A rubber frog was put on the end of a spoon and we had to hit the other end of the spoon to flip it into a wine bucket on the floor.  There are about 25 or 30 regulars that go to most of the activities.  At lunch on the Lido they were cracking open coconuts so you could drink the coconut water.  I got an email from Swagatam about seeing the Taj at moonlight.  I think the 6 of us will do it on our own.

     The entertainment tonight was “Opera Interludes”, a passion for Puccini.  A pianist and 4 singers performed various opera songs with a little touch of humor.  Their voices were amazing.  It was as if we were back at the Sydney Opera House.

     Clocks get set back another hour tonight.
