We docked at Recife Brazil Tuesday night, and departed early Wednesday afternoon. Since this was our last stop in Brazil and the Southern Hemisphere, we went ashore and wandered around for a couple of hours.
The weather was hot and humid and we appreciated the ship's air conditioning when we returned. Our afternoon involved shuffleboard, golf putting, and team trivia, all organized by the cruise director and his friendly assistants.
Today (Thursday) we're scheduled to cross the Equator and officially enter the Northern Hemisphere around 8:00 p.m. (4:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time). Our next port is Cape Verde about three days away, and we're hoping for calm seas as we chug along at our usual 18 knots.
