Hey Bro! It seems to work, glad you could do it.
Well, we got on the ship yesterday. It sailed about 5:30 PM on the way to Monaco. BUT, due to the weather we could not dock, so we have an extra day at sea. I'm not sure if the weather caused problems getting on Funville, but I've been trying since we sailed to send a msg.
Around 10:30 AM yesterday we took a walking tour of the Barri Gothic area of Barcelona. I'm not going into the details, but we really love Barcelona and will be back! Next time for longer. Three hours of walking on pavement did kick out butts! We were really hurting last night. Boatingman (Bermie and Anne) were on the tour with us. And it was free! :) We each tipped the guide 10 Euros. He was German, but had lived in England for 20 years; thus, his English was excellent.
We got back to the hotel about 2:00 PM and had the front desk call a van to pick us up. Bernie and I split the 25 Euro cost. Going to the Barri Gothic we took the yellow line from a station only 1 block from the hotel. We split a T-10 ticket, costing us 5 Euros for each couple. It is very easy to share it. We had two rides left and I gave it to a cleaning lady at the port. She seemed pleased.
We ate in the MDR last night. I wasn'[t impressed with the menu. Linda and I both had Sweet & Sour Shirmp. For lunch today we ate at Guy's Burger joint, something Linda wanted to do. It was very good, or should I say Brilliant. Speaking of Brilliant, I walked in on Jaime doing the Morning Show. So, I recognized her later and we talked. She is really nice and excellent at her job. She is a real natural on the show. She will be stopping by our Med M&G on the 30th.
Before trying Funville again, I was helping Linda decorate the cabin door for Holloween. It should win the door decorating contest! :)
Guess that is it for now. Oh, for the TA crowd - The names for dinning will not be downloaded to the ship until Venice. Turns out I know the Matre'd from the Freedom. He is a hoot and is happy to help us. He will be leaving the ship on 11/6, but will still assist us with our seating.
