Thanks, Martin, for all your posts. I'm really enjoying reading them and seeing your pictures.
I just got back from a week in Cuba with Sophie and Tara. We didn't get to see much - if anything - of the "real" Cuba, as we stayed at an all-inclusive resort populated by mostly overweight Canadians and Brits. Not so easy on the eyes, but good for the ego. And even though a resort is not my preferred style of vacationing, the chance to snooze in the sun all afternoon was very enjoyable after the craziness of the winter semester. We drank, read, slept, laughed, sunned, and swam.
The three of us went snorkeling (on the world's second-largest reef) and tandem parasailing (tethered to a powerboat until 1200 m and then released, parachuting back down again), and I went off on my own to do some scuba diving as well (saw a 2 m Eagle Ray, swam with sea turtles, and saw lots of fish on the coral reef). I've updated our on-line photo album if you want to check out any of the picts: http://cogmem.psychology.dal.ca
