MSC Sinfonia – Day 15 – Recife, Brazil

3 Dec 2007 – MSC Sinfonia – Day 15 – Recife

I would say that all of us were more than glad to see the following on the screen this morning –

Preceeded by a lovely sunrise

After that, things sort of went down hill. If you don’t go to the beaches (resort city) and decide to just go wandering, well, it was pretty ugly. These are the most attractive of the city sites we found.

Sandi compares it to the old New Orleans about 0900 in the morning, before the mess has been cleaned up from last nights’ parties.

Other than more of the classic Portugeuse mosaic side walks

and a military aviation monument

This seems to be a fairly poor area, dependent on the shipping industry



Managing to reknit the first front band and attach it properly – it seems like the Kauni may actually be finished by the time we pull into Buenos Aires

Which left me free to start the next piece of Mein Weg

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
