DAY 19 OK, OK! We know that we have used October 6 twice but we crossed the International Date Line back to US side so Wednesday, October 6, 2010 occurs twice on the MV Rotterdam.
 The seas are still up but are quieting down. We both attend the Cook-Off in the Culinary Arts Center where Benny and the two lead singers produce their own versions of Qusesadillas. It is fun to watch as all three are a hoot! Carolyn says the end products are not bad. One has an Italian flare with pesto and spinach leaves, one has a honey-mustard dipping sauce and the last one is a more traditional Mexican variety.
Carolyn goes to lunch but Dick passes after a big breakfast and goes to the on-board speaker’s presentation about WWII in the Pacific. He is a good presenter and has some photos and data he has not seen before. The afternoon is very pleasant outside so Carolyn adjourns to the veranda to read and nap...heavy on the nap.

Tonight we share our table with the Rodriguez’s. They both came to the US with their families from Cuba in the 1960's. They both have very interesting stories. We have a very pleasant evening and plan to share a table again soon. The movie tonight is Hawaii. It is almost three hours so we both go for the first part before going to dinner, but Dick isn’t enjoying it that much so doesn’t go back after dinner. Carolyn does and then takes a stroll on the promade deck about midnight. The ship is always so peaceful at this time.
