I make a habit of only posting when something grips me. Literally, if the voice in my head says, "I've got to blog this!" it gets posted.
8/21: Arrived in Cozumel. Swam with a dolphin named Ashin. Dolphins are easier to train than humans.
8/23: Cruises are, for the money, an amazing trip. As I ate, I kept thinking of Cory's vacation blogs. There would have been no way to blog every great meal I had. But there is another side of cruising that disturbed me. First, on a cruise you don't really see a place. You see the characterization of a place and it's people. I'm pretty sure they just see a characterization of visitors also. Although, I can justify how our tourist dollars support the people and the ports of call, it's not just. Our cruise had 100,000 lbs of refuse food at the end of the cruise. Our need to get away and be entertained fuels whole economies. I'm thinking about my next cruise being with Mercy Ships.
