We made it!IMG 0048 thumb Greetings From Curacao

It was a very long trip to get here, but we finally made. I forgot how rough red eye flights can be on your body. Even after running 20 miles Saturday morning I wasn’t able to completely knock out on the plane.

But, I was semi-productive over the long layover in Miami. I worked on RER a bit icon smile Greetings From Curacao It makes me happy.

Since we were there so long we got empanadas for lunch. I got the spinach and cheese, IMG 0045 thumb Greetings From Curacao and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of spinach versus cheese. Filling something with veggies cancels out the fried aspect, doesn’t it?IMG 0046 thumb Greetings From Curacao

Then, we arrived on an island in the sun! IMG 0077 thumb Greetings From Curacao

This is the view from our balcony. You can see the ocean a bit past the palm trees.IMG 0057 thumb Greetings From Curacao 

We immediately changed into our bathing suits and commenced drinking! IMG 0058 thumb Greetings From Curacao

I don’t drink that often at home for various reasons. But, on vacation all bets are off.

Ben and I are staying at an all inclusive place and decided to hit up the Teppanyaki restaurant last night. It is a really gorgeous open air place on the beach, perfect for a warm summer night. IMG 0064 thumb Greetings From Curacao

I have only been to a Teppanyaki place once before and I love watching your food being cooked right in front of you. Well, I love it until I see how much butter the chef uses on everything. But, it was very delicious.IMG 0065 thumb Greetings From Curacao

We started with salad and sushi:IMG 0062 thumb Greetings From Curacao IMG 0061 thumb Greetings From Curacao

And then the chef cooked up : noodles, chicken and beef (which I didn’t eat), fish and shrimp. IMG 0069 thumb Greetings From Curacao

After dinner Ben and I grabbed dessert with some new friends. We shared this plate of goodies plus an unpictured cup of strawberry ice cream. IMG 0072 thumb Greetings From CuracaoThere are obviously undocumented adult beverages going on too.

I woke up this morning feeling hung-over. Wait. No, I wasn’t hung-over. I was just wicked tired from staying up drinking all night icon wink Greetings From Curacao

But, I powered through and hit up the fitness center. Since I was feeling pretty rough I took it easy and did a few miles on the treadmill. Actually, I had no choice but to take it easy since the treadmills are from 1984 and don’t change speed. As much as I tried to increase the speed I could only do a slow jog.IMG 0076 thumb Greetings From Curacao

I am not sure what the plans for today are, but I’ll see ya later!

    Enjoy Curacao, it is such a wonderful island.
    After your trip, can you post the name of the AI you stayed at? I didn’t know there were any in Curacao. I would be interested in it for the future. Thanks!

    The resort looks great! I love the ginger dressing on the salads served at sushi places, but it really does a number on the breath.
