Our cruise ship the Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas.
It was raining...and hard, this morning as we woke.  We had to check out by 11a and had planned on spending  a couple of hours one the beach after checkout.  Instead we searched for an internet cafe, found it closed, and then caught a bus to the Plaza De Americas, a very large shopping mall. 

Again the bus failed us.  We were excited to get on one after walking and standing in the rain but then while keeping an eye on our location realized we weren't headed the right way.  When asked the driver said, get off and catch bus 22.  We did, and that worked, but it was frustrating because all of the signs etc said that the bus we were on should have taken us right to the mall.  We knew that there had been a change in routes in 2008 (2 years ago) but figured things had been updated by now.  That wasn't the case.

We looked around the mall a bit, had some lunch, and then looked at a museum exhibit there about Divinci.  It was neat because Kim and I were able to understand the signage even though it was in Spanish.

As we left the mall, the raid was stopping, and we decided to just head to the boat on time at 2pm.  It doesn't leave till 8 so we had plenty of spare time, but with the rain there wasn't much else we wanted to do since our luggage was going to be an issue for us.  Instead we found the internet cafe had opened so we spent some time there updating things.

For those of you reading in real-time, we probably won't be able to post much until we get to our first stop on the 9th. Internet on the boat is expensive so we'll be quick if we do it.
