Friday Night and Saturday

Friday Night Dinner

Our dinner Friday night was supposed to be a bit of a surprise coming in to PR. Thu night we all got cards inviting us to a special dinner in the Rainforest. So we all bundled up into four busses and headed up to the mountains. The ride was a bit hairy but when we got there were were treated to a lovely little walk through the Rainforest at night and then had a nice cocktail hour.

The dinner itself, the food, was pretty disappointing, at least that was the consensus. Personally I thought the meat was ok, but somehow they had destroyed the local grouper that they cooked up for the fish. How they did that is still beyond me. After desert there was much dancing and fun. Everyone got pretty buzzed who wanted to on Bacardi Rum punches including yours truely. Liza doesnt "do" rum but she had a few herself.

We got to talk to a lot of people, including Rick's Hillman's wife for quite a bit. You always get to meet the most interesting people on these trips, and this trip has been no exception. With it being the third Superstars trip for Liza, you begin to see the same faces over and over, which is good too.

We had to chase down a late night snack at the Mirador "restaurant" after we got back to the resort because the dinner had been so unremarkable.

Remember to go from Bottom to Top, and page one to three!!

Saturday - Fun day on the beach

We slept in on Saturday and didn't get down to the beach till 1115. We had not eaten either, as we kinda slept through breakfast. We had a great time just hanging on the beach with the Hillman krew. The food was amazing, and made up for Thu and Fri's fare. We had chicken, ribs, salad etc. Very yummy.

There were Hobie Cat Catamaran rides available free for one half hour so we did that, and it was really fun. Those things do get going. We also had a challenge from Upper Hillman Management to all comers, and they beat all three teams that challenged them in Volleyball.

Tonight we have our "special" dinner at an Asian restaurant which seems to be the best one according to the people we have chatted with. It's just Liza and I, but we may be joined by Mike from her region, whose wife was not allowed to go on this trip by her school district because of how close it was to the Spring Break in two weeks.

Remember to go from Bottom to Top!!
