February 1st in San Juan, Puerto Rico and setting sail
We flew into San Juan at midnight on January 31st. We stayed at a low-end motel called the Green Isle. The next morning we
had breakfast. I had a seafood omelet that was about the worst thing I have ever eaten (see happy Mark below). We spent the
day exploring old San Juan before boarding the ship. This included touring Castillo San Cristóbal in old town.
The flags were all at half-mast due to the Shuttle disaster that happened this morning.
Below we came upon an interesting wedding ritual and some folks dressed up and running the streets like running with the bulls.
Next we went through the boarding process onto the big ship. We had to take a quick tour of the ship to get acclimated.
