Day 13 - Friday 21 December - Transatlantic Crossing Day 6


Woke up early, as per usual, but didn't bother to get up and continue documenting the ship. Just lay there not sleeping. Yay.

At 7:30 (when the laundrette "opens") I went to see about putting on some washing, but of course all the machines were in use already weren't they?

Blogged, breakfast.

Did a bit of the new jigsaw (of Polperro).

At 10:00 was Seth Gopin's last talk on skyscrapers - The Chic New York Skyscrapers of Today: Green and Lean.

Did the jigsaw some more.

At 12:15 was a talk by a journalist Bryher Scudamore about con artists and scams, which was ok but nothing really new.

Found the sweetie and had some lunch.

At 14:00 was Bill Miller's last talk - Gateway to the World: The Great Port of New York. The silly thing is a lot of it mirrored Seth Gopin's talks on New York skyscrapers hehe.

<<Jetlag-induced ranty paragraph about people snipped>>

Sigh.

At 16:30 we watched Ready Player One, which was a bit of fun. I got plenty of the pop culture references, but I'm sure there was heaps I didn't. Be fun to read the IMDB entry for its references. Some of them are there for only fractions of seconds (eg a gremlin!).

The sweetie didn't want to go to fancy dinner, so we ended up going to the pub for beer and trivia and had a light dinner in Kings Court.
