Spain - Cartagena and Cadiz

Monday April 18, 2011 11:45 AM (5:45 AM EDT)

Today we are in the Atlantic where we will land tomorrow morning at
Funchal on the island of Madeira, a part of Portugal. Yesterday we were
in Cadiz, Spain and on Saturday we were in Cartagena also in Spain. Both
of these ports we have visited on a number of occasions. In both towns
we just walked from the ship and strolled along the streets and watched
people. Yesterday we 'camped' on the steps of Cadiz's Cathedral with our
laptop and checked Nancy's Yahoo mail (193 emails!) and listened the
voicemail messages on Vonage. It takes too long and too expensive to do
those things on board the ship and its WiFi service.
Just an update on Friday's post concerning the Roulette tournament.
After the preliminary rounds I moved down from forth place to sixth
place. Still enough to qualify for the finals. After four spins I was
probably third in number of chips left but was lucky on the fifth spin
after betting all of my chips, most on number seven. Even today in the
casino the results of the tournament - "Patrick 1st Place." And the
prize was $175. Not too shabby.
