    Wednesday Day 15:

    Had my first experience with a Botica on the island. Excellent service and bend over backwards to assist!

    Stayed by the pool this afternoon and had a couple of beverages. It was windy today, so I’m glad we didn’t go to the beach and get bitten by the sand, as others here at The Pearl reported.

    Why we don’t make plans…the wife wanted to go look for some more djucu jewelry at a store in Palm Beach. We didn’t know the name of the store, so we went back to the store at Lacabana and asked the nice man there where it was, as he referred us to it. He said it was across from PBV, so we thought we’d go back to Bohemia for happy hour and then shop. The wife was getting hangry and didn’t want to eat a Bohemian, so she said let’s go to Tierra Del Sol. So, we headed in that direction and she realized it was to early for happy hour there, so said let’s go to Faro Blanco. We get there and order a beverage and then ask for the food menu. They were not serving food at the bar, as the restaurant had 250 people reserved for dinner. While we’re sitting up the bar, a waiter comes up to us and said hello. The wife said, do I know you? I turned around and recognized him as the drummer that was playing with Honey Pot last Sunday at the Beach Bar. How he remembered us, no clue, and so funny. We finished our drink and headed to Tierra Del Sol, and now she’s really hangry! We had a couple of beverages and ordered Calamari and Keshi Yana. Both were very good. The restaurant is completely redone, and the bar now faces the sea. They also added additional bench seating and the bar serves both indoor and outdoor seating. We'll be back...

    Made our way back to the condo for a little TV time and then crashed.

    I can definitely relate to being hangry. It gets worse when you don’t know what you want to eat! If you’re downtown, the Cosheca store will sometimes have djucu. If not, it still interesting to poke around.

    Schexc and his bride are easy to identify.
    I do not mind posting their picture here.
    Schexc never posts photos of himself or of the Mrs.
    I have no problems revealing their identity.

    We're a little harder to recognize now, as a few years have passed
