Wednesday January 18th - Day 14
Last night in The Colonnade there was a Brazilian themed
dinner followed by a 'Rock The Banana Boat' show on deck followed by a Samba
A local Samba troupe joined the ship in Salvador and will stay
with us until Rio. They really got the party going with some great music and
This afternoon we went to a Samba class run by the
dancers for an hour. It was so hard like having an aerobic workout. Vance was
really good - that's his dance background coming out - but teacher says I must do
After returning to our suite after a formal dinner in the Main
Restaurant we found our first Seabourn gift of the cruise - two CDs - one of
Brazilian music and one of South African music...now I'll be able to keep up
the Samba moves at home.
