Gala Evening - Mariner's Ball
A relaxing sea day today, sailing to Barcelona.
There's quite a cool breeze blowing and it's 14 degrees.
After breakfast, I went for an appointment with Marco, the gym instructor, re working on my metabolism. I will join a gym when I am back home to receive some training in how to use weights properly.
I then went to a lecture by John McCarthy, who spoke about his 1,943 days as a captive in Beirut by the Islamic Fundamentalists. It was rivetting and will be continued in a couple of days. The theatre was almost full.
We are having room service for lunch.
We had a lazy afternoon and Phil slept, trying to recover from his cold and I finished reading another book.
It was another gala evening, so we dressed for dinner and after dinner we went to a show. We thought it was going to be Phillip Browne again. It was, but prior to his performance, the ship's dancers and singers put on a show. They were very good and then Phillip Browne came on and only sang a few songs this time, which was a shame. His first show was a knock out.
We have an early rise tomorrow for our shore excursion to Tarragona in Barcelona.
