Default HowD from a soggy San Juan

We arrived in San Juan at 10 AM this morning. Being our first return to a US port the entire ship had to clear immigration. The US citizens, in the Celebrity Theater, we aliens in the Cosmos disco.

We were assigned a time to show, and the entire process, took all of 5 minutes. VERY organized, and not one staff member told me to shut up <G>

Then we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at the Lido deck buffet, and headed off to Old San Juan. Just walked and shopped for a few gifts for those back home, until it started to POUR rain.
As we made our way back towards the ship, a tour bus operator stopped and offered us a free ride back to the ship, to avoid us getting any wetter. A very kind gesture... by an operator who obviously appreciates, and knows how to impress the tourist trade.

We're in port until 8 PM , so if the rain stops this afternoon, we'll head out again for Mrs. Kuki to keep contributing to the island economy.

Interesting how they sent you "aliens" to the "Cosmos" Disco eh Kuki?
Hmmm, raining in San Juan? Not much different here in Montreal, except that here, it started out as great big SNOWFLAKES!

Hi Moose Man,
If you get out again, try to get to the Butterfly store, bet Geela would love that..

Hope the rain stops, but better than the rain/snow we got yesterday, although its a beautiful winter wonderland today, but melting quickly.

It is obvious that Mrs Kuki is not a serious shopper. A little liquid sunshine never slows Gram down, just gives her an excuse to spend more time IN the store and less time window shopping.
