Leaving Miami

This is going backwards, but what to do?  The online internet is not only slow, but also unpredictable.  I feel that I have stepped back 5 years on internet technology.

This ia a photo of Miami as we left.  Our stateroom is aft, which means the end of the ship.  So I can look out and see where we have been.

The ship, called the Norwegian Dawn is enormous, holding on this trip more than 2000 people.  I can't even imagine how difficult it is to feed that number, keep them occupied, and keep the ship clean. But most of the staff is from the Philippines. A few are from Bangladesh and other developing countries, but no one is from the West. What  was this about exporting jobs?   Probably they can't afford western pay scales and their pensions.
