    Day 5 time flies. Speaking of flies, when I went to gostoso there was this fly hoovering over the chef every time he came over to chat. He apologised for the fly and I said oh no it only comes around when you come over. He said, well I did take a bath today. I said that fly is In love with you. Sure enough when he left, the fly disappeared. Weird!

    Anyway today I did a 40 minute walk in the morning, breakfast in room, beach, pool and dinner at Barneys. It was packed at Barneys but mostly locals. I could hear most people chatting in Dutch. We got the $23 Early bird special. Soup or salad, parm grouper for me and beef tips for ms daisy. Dessert was also included. They are offering this deal for all of may and it's all day meaning you don't have to be there at 5:30 to 6:30 like most early bird specials. I got there at 7:30 but did not leave until 9pm. It was crowded and really busy.

    We went back to la cabana and spent 3 hours at the casino. We are also getting killed! Ms Daisy doesn't know when to call it quits! She lost $60 playing slots and says to me to spot her a $20. I told her that was all I had on me so we would be out after the $20. She played for 1 hour and 15 minutes with that 20 same machine. She was up at one point $80 so she could have given me my $20 and walk out even. Instead she kept playing until she lost it all. Oh well at least she had fun and I got free drinks while I heard karaoke.

    Tomorrow is my birthday so I'm breaking the routine a little. Bully is picking us up for a 3 hour island tour then I will probably hit the pool and dinner at Quintana de Carmen. Can,t wait!
