Honeymoon – Day 2

OK.  It is day 2 of the honeymoon and today we’re boarding the MSC Lyrica.  Of course being the technogeek I am, the first thing I did when I got on board was to get hooked into WiFi and test connection speeds.  It turns out the ship’s internet is provided by a British provider.  As you’d expect, connection speeds on a ship are quite slow.  Here’s what we are getting:
So what new observations have I made today?  Here we go…
  • It seems Civitavecchia beaches have no sand.
  • Restaurants, including pizzerias do NOT open until 5 or even 6 PM.  Europeans eat late!
  • I haven’t seen a morbidly obese person yet.  OK.  I saw one, but I’m not sure she was Italian.
  • The Hotel Borgo Del Mare (formerly the Hotel Bramante) where we stayed overnight, serves the best damn cappuccino I’ve ever had!
  • Jess forgot all her tennis/comfortable walking shoes and I forgot my shades.  They do NOT sell tennies on the ship.  High heels and flip flops here we go.  As for shades… starting at 90 Euro, I think I’ll just squint. 😉
OK, photo time…
