World Cruise, New Slippers!

The Indian market was on my list for today, our second in port, so we took the shuttle into the city and walked a couple miles up one of the main drags to the area where the Inca Market and the handicrafts are available aplenty.  The journey was a success in that I bought my new llama slippers and a couple pair of woven Converse type sneakers in rainbow colors, one for a ship friend.  Love, love them.

After a lunch stop of empanadas and wifi we headed back to the Larca Mall area for a quick window shopping hour and more wifi at the Marriott Hotel before heading back to the ship.

The Prinsendam arrived in port the same morning so we were able to visit and see some friends, including Capt Tim Roberts, one of our favorites.  It was fun seeing the smallest of our fleet and how much it differs from the rest of the ships.  It is the most popular ship we have and carries a large following.  Being small it is able to reach many ports that our larger ships can’t.  Try it, you’ll like it!
