    Pro-adoption. Check.

    How are your blender skills?
    I would ask this of any children we'd look at adopting.

    LOL - I'm sure we'll be doing that on the next trip..."Wasn't that the house?!?"

    The houses and land were as follows:

    The one with the high cathedral ceilings and the insane pool is in Safir in Noord.
    The one where we only looked at the small kidney pool in the back is in Gasparito
    The piece of land is in Rooi Santo (behind Ting Wei).
    And our house is in heaven.

    With all of the rain yesterday, we did a lot of shopping. Actually, other than grabbing a couple of things at Ling's, it was a lot of looking and no buying. We went to Paseo Herencia mall, Palm Beach Plaza and several other shops in the Palm Beach area and in a few of the hotels. We just dodged the raindrops and went for it. We noticed a lot of empty storefronts in both malls, it was a bit disturbing, we were hoping that Palm Beach Plaza would have grown more. We did see that Iguana Joe's may be adding a location there. Breakfast and lunch were in the room and heavy hors d'oeuvres at the owners meeting was dinner. The rain had finally stopped so we waded down to Moomba for a couple of drinks. We met and talked to a bunch of nice folks there and had a pretty slow evening.

    Yesterday the weather was back to normal. We started the day by receiving our "Distinguished Visitor" award from the ATA. We were presented it with two other couples and come to find out both of those couples were from Virginia Beach and we all six graduated from the same high school. Small world, we've only met a few folks from Virginia in all of our trips. The rest of the day we spent hanging out with Kim and Darrin (kemperato) here at the Surf Club. We played poolside bingo, had drinks, and floated in the lazy river. Later we went to the Local Store for garlic parmesan, blue bbq and Buffalo wings and fried pickles and loaded french fries. We had an awesome time with our new friends. After dinner we parted ways and Pam and I ended up at Moomba. While there we met a few of the crew from "The Swedish Bachelor" that are shooting their show on the island. They were a great bunch and we enjoyed meeting them.
