This was our third trip on a houseboat. The past two times we had mainly stayed in large lakes, but we begged and begged and they agreed to do more backwater touring. We were thrilled. Things started off right with the largest boat yet (two stories y’all).
Such a supermodel right there. Look at that totally non-awkward hand placement. We were also served our usual starter beverage. Zee coconut. Never gets old.
And Vanessa and Yajaira broke in their new peacock fans (which resulted in endless rounds of “Let me see you peacock cock cock your peacock cock cock…”). Super fabulous.
After Vanessa was properly cooled, I got in on the action.
I also got to watch these two schmucks doing their usual thing:
Crazy ladies. Then it was photo time.
So awkward. Thankfully, I was able to help Janine drive the boat and we escaped safely.
We were also served lunch. I hate this fish. So much. We get it like every day and it has 9,000 bones and just creeps me out in general. I had a lot of rice instead.
We wrapped our day up with an exciting trip to the ER for Jennifer. She’s fine now, but Janine and I were convinced she was about to die. Thankfully, our amazing host father rushed us 30 miles away at midnight to the “good hospital” to make sure she was fine. We (minus Jennifer who was exhausted) were dying laughing because he said he never drives over 60 mph, but he was going 63. So he told us to “close your eyes and pray to God” as he frantically weaved in and out of traffic. I also finally managed to get some medicine for my own cold/strep throat (<- didn’t realize I was carrying that around) that I had been enjoying for 12 days.
Only the lonely.
