He's not my favorite person, but he makes mom happy so that's all that matters. He can be very moody which is difficult. My biggest problem is that I can't really be around him and just relax, he always wants to make conversation. There's no comfortable silence with him. But, he makes mom happy and that's all that matters. Bummer. It's not the words, it's the beat. I've never liked a rap beat. There's nothing like nostalgia though, it's a beautiful thing. No no no, you don't pay that unless you lose one. There's no money upfront. It looks like a swim/snorkle excursion in really cool environment. They have underground rivers you can swim in, natural pools, animal exhibits. I also thought of just staying on the ship but there's so many options I don't think that's a good idea. Oh yes, there are plenty of great restaurants close by. Some of the excursions aren't all day ones, you can probably do both depending on which you choose. I can't remember how the mission trip was organized, it was with the church but not my local church. I was 14 and it was my first time out of the country besides Canada. Also first time away from my parents. My dad trusted me with some of his friends and sent me off. We helped build a church. It was an amazing experience and helped spur my wanderlust.
