Wednesday 18th September

It is amazing how quickly you can become accustomed to things. This is our third day at sea.  Tomorrow we will dock in Cartegena, the first land we will have seen since leaving Southampton on Sunday.  Rather than getting bored I have loved taking time to read.  I have finally finished reading the Steve Job biography.  This was hard going but I finally got there.  My thoughts on the book and the man himself are for another post at another time.  I have slowed down markedly and even managed to  sleep until 8am this morning.  It is a very long time since I achieved that.  I am now sitting on the balcony having read some more, writing this and thought about breakfast.  All I need now is for Mrs M to waken so that we can go and eat.
