Day 12, Wed., Jan. 16, 2013 ~ General San Martin, Peru (near Pisco)


     We didn’t take a tour today because most involved getting in a small open boat and I don’t handle them well.  We took the complimentary shuttle service to a small, quaint fishing village, El Chaco about 20 minutes away.  We drove through barren but beautiful Paracas Park.  The village had many small restaurants, shops and dogs.

     We spent the last of our Peruvian Nuevo Soles at the pier where there were a few stalls.  Every shop or stall seems to sell the same thing.  I did buy a cheap pair of earrings and when I went to put them on, one of the ear pieces was rusted.  I will change them out when Maureen does earrings.

     We had lunch in the dining room and then decided to have dinner in the Canaletto restaurant.  We weren’t crazy about the menu in the La Fontaine DR.  From deck 8 we could see many jellyfish in the water.  I can only image how large they were!  Ray had spaghetti and meatballs and I had veal cutlet.  Not sure why, but they serve cotton candy after the meal.  The entertainment was comedian Jack Mayberry.  We have seen him before, but only a couple of jokes were repeats.  I finished another book today.

     We have 4 sea days to Easter Island, then 2 sea days to anchor off Pitcairn Island and then 2 more sea days before Papeete.  We will have 2 formals during that time.
