Woke up around 9. Had breakfast and headed into shore. Nich, Sean, Suz, Nikki, Amy, Rachel and I hired Victor to give us a tour of the city and take us to the Mayan ruins. Victor was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of interesting information about the island and daily life in a tourist town. The ruins were interesting but not very expansive. However, it was nice to walk around outside the city for a while and we got a chance to play with some iguanas. After the ruins Victor dropped us off at the restaurant where he and the other cab drivers take lunch breaks. Lunch was good- enchiladas and tacos for the most part- and came with some pretty big margaritas (although I stuck with the dark ale). After a long relaxed lunch we walked the shops for a few minutes and then caught a taxi back to the pier. We met up with the Phi Mu crew at the beach overlooking the boat, and then spent the rest of the afternoon reading and enjoying the hammocks. Dinner was steak with baked Alaska (layers of cake and ice-cream). After dinner we hung out in the rooms for a while and then spent some time playing cards. At one point some 17-year-old orchestra player tried to join in the fun, but we all awkwardly ignored him until he went away. Eventually we had to leave because camp carnival was hosting karaoke for teens and we couldn’t have alcohol. The group went dancing, but Suz, Darragh and I explored the boat for a while and ended up chilling on deck and falling asleep in the lawn chairs.
