6.35 pm // at sea leaving Dominica {cruise day 4/11}

I thought I may have been getting depressed yesterday, but realized that I was just really thirsty. They are quite similar feelings, quite confusing. Hey maybe I’m tired because of dehydration from all the sun. I should drink more water. Apparently the tap water on the ship is not recommended though.

We docked in Dominica today. I went out for half an hour then went back to my room for a nap. I’m still exhausted. I feel like I could sleep for a month. I’ve worked 11 days in a row and have 169 more days before I get a day off. This must be how the people on Battlestar Galatica would have felt.

On the bright side, I don’t get nauseous any more on the ship. In fact, when I’m on land now, I feel kinda funny.  

Today, I thought my teeth were getting whiter but then realized that it was just my skin getting darker. I’m no longer pasty “cappuccino”. I’m now more like “mocha”. I wonder how long till “dark roast”….

I wore my Free Hugs t-shirt on the ship the other day. I thought it may inspire some people on the ship to ask for a hug. No dice. I’m tempted to give it a go in one of these ports. I think San Juan may be my best bet. Hopefully I will be able to get hold of some local CouchSurfers to join. That would make me so super happy awesome.

3 days since a hug (I hugged some of the crew who disembarked in San Juan). I can’t wait for more people to leave so I can get more hugs. Just kidding!
