Join in the fun.. all you have to do is engage by commenting and come to the party! You will be sharing the journey with me, Carra Riley as I travel with world with my husband Tom on the Spring 2011 Semester at Sea voyage. I will be doing research as I write “Cosmic Cow Pie…Connecting The Dots Around The World.”
Today was a full day of checking out of the hotel, getting to the dock, going through customs, unpacking and participating in a “meet and greet” with the parents of the students on the voyage!
I set up the computer with the ships wireless system but we cannot upload video. I will have to save the video till I can get to Cyber Cafes in port and stick to small file pictures to share! You can also go to my flickr account and see the photos of the day all along the voyage!
A picture speaks a thousand words.. so this is what we did today!
More pictures on flickr in the Semester At Sea MV Explorer set.
