    Feb 3 - Feb 13 Caribbean cruise
  • theatre and Concerrts

    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

Cruise on the “Breakaway” conclusion

In order of sailing, we called in at San Juan, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, Philipsburg, St Maarten, St. Lucia, Bridgetown, Barbados and Basseterre,  Saint Kitts. I have visited these places many times over the years and it is possible that I have confused some of them. Let me know if you spot any errors.
