We got off at the shopping district, it was only a few blocks away from Divina. My uncle also said that he would buy us lunch with some of the casino winnings, so we wanted to look for a restaurant around the area.
We kept on walking around looking for a restaurant, and they were also shopping in the process.
Such a colorful street.
I love this picture! I waited until there were no cars coming to get the shoot.
My uncle wanted to buy a Bob Marley shirt. I think he ended up buying it in GSC.
I was thirsty as hell, so I got a sprite to quench my thirst!
We found what looked like a local restaurant.
We decided to go in.
They have a bunch of fun little artifacts around the walls.
We all ordered. I had initially ordered red snapper, but later on I was told by our server that the fish was not good. I am so glad that he told me that, instead of serving me the old fish. So I simply said to make the paella for 2 in for 3 people.
My uncle ordered a chicken soup, he said it was fabulous!
My uncle is funny, in-between food he eats a bunch of candy
My aunt got some kind of omelet with sausage, she said it was great.
And the Paella? DEAR LORD!!!! It was the best entree that I had in this entire vacation!!!!! It was absolutely fantastic. Then again I love paella, so that statement might be a little bit biased. Either way we loved it!!!!
By the way it was huge!!!! The picture does not do its justice!
We finished lunch, I think the total came out to $96 with tip included, I left a few more bucks.
I found this one for mom. It is crazy how all the walking they do and they rarely find anything. I go into the store 2 seconds and I find everything they need in that time .
Mom bought that one as well for her collection.
Anyone has a Lambo like this at home ?
I will admit that there was one Item that I fell in love with! But as you imagine I have expensive taste, the cost? $45! So, um yeah, it was a no go, I could not afford it
We left the store and continued walking.
I was kind of tired by then, so I told mom that I would be there waiting for them while they shopped a little. The funny thing is that my uncle joined me there. Mom and my aunt went on to look a little more.
My uncle and waited there for about 20 minutes. I told them to take more time, I was doing fine there, the shade was prefect. But mom told me they were done. So we moved out, and started walking towards the ship.
He did not look very happy, or friendly for that matter.
There she is!
I tried looking for some, but saw none. It might have something to do with them being in danger.
We still had plenty of time left in port, but they were done shopping and I was done walking.
Boarding the ship was smooth and simple.
This picture was a mistake, I left the camera on Illustration mode by accident. It came really cool though.
I had not noticed this till now, and actually it was not even me who noticed it. Mom was the one who pointed at it.
I only saw the artichoke pizza once, and I did not get it. I tried looking for it multiple times after that, but no luck.
As you can see many of the choices involve pasta. That is not entirely a bad thing, for many of whom adore pasta that is a good thing. However, not all the choices are the ones I enjoyed the most. I tend to like creamy pastas, and those were rather limited. Like I said in a past post, I bet I could make a much better alfredo sauce than the one offered on the cruise.
They all got little snacks here and there.
Since the pasta was not to my liking, I decided to go check out something that I would enjoy a bit more.
I don’t I have spoken of the drinks available for free. The variated a bit; fruit punch, ice tea, coffee, OJ, grapefruit juice, lemonade and water. Sometimes they had flavored waters as well, but I am not a big fan of those.
Nothing really caught my eye, you know how buffets work… You tend to love everything when you don’t have them, but once they are available, you cannot seem to make up your mind. Ironically, there was one area that I had ignored; the Kids Section. I said what the hell, maybe I can find something that I enjoy.
As you can see I was not the only adult with that thought in mind, lol.
I guess the child in me was right. The popcorn shrimp was indeed very tasty, a tad small, but tasty nonetheless.
