At the risk of boring our fellow cruisers just a bit more, it sounds like you, Sir, had an amazing childhood. And did you ever have a sense of danger? I doubt it. I was exhilarated even as a child, at being immersed in a different culture.

I don't recall "Les Ambassadeurs", but I remember many fine meals, and eating everything placed before me--drinking only "agua mineral sin gas", or beer (my mother preferred me drinking beer to soda) and never becoming ill.

How I long for those quieter, gentler times.

No, actually I do mean LOCAL, haha. I have grown up in San Jose (CA) which has a large hispanic population and I know the difference between Taco Bell, El Toritos, and a good dinner cooked by a first generation family. I am going to keep a list of all the advice everyone is giving here though and we'll decide what we feel like that day.

Thanks so much for all the advice - and thanks also to ChucksOK for the warning which I know will be helpful for others reading this board. But I wouldn't mind some more "LOCAL" suggestions!

Edited to add: how wierd that my ticker says I have left on my cruise!! I hope I haven't slept for a week and missed my embarkation day!
