Day 2 | Entry 2 | 1800
Location: East Caribbean Sea perceptions
Note: This post is the second in my ongoing blog series, Perceptions.
I was able to get a spot alongside the crowded rail last night as we left port. I couldn’t see my parents, but I know they were down in the mass of families waving goodbye as the ship’s’ horn deafened us all. The beautiful harbor lights faded into darkness as we headed out to sea.
Today has consisted of meetings (see the schedule below) that have left me exhausted and overdue for some much-needed rest. You might be perplexed by the 24-hour time below but believe it or not, the entire world uses it. If you think about the concept, it makes much more sense than our “AM – PM” approach.
