Less that one week for boarding!

What up guys,

Its 6 days till we board the ship in Hawaii. At this time in two days (on friday) i will be on a bus heading to Boston to board my hawaii flight.

Last week has been good here at SEA. I went to Boston on the weekend which was really fun and useful. I discovered the beauty of the garment district and decided that that will be the place which I make all my future clothing purchases. I also had the chance to go to the Kebab Factory, a fantastic indian restaurant with lots of tasty goodies.

Back in Woods Hole its all about working in our projects and papers. I have 1500 word paper due tomorrow which I really don't want to do. I also have a test tomorrow. All this work is just making us more eager to get on the plane to Hawaii.

I have been busy watching how Argentina totally dominates the World Cup and I am looking forward to watching the Argentina-Mexico game on Sunday at 6am Hawaii time. I am also rooting for Germany to get first place in their group and thus we would get Germany-England for the round of sixteen (yay!).

I still need to get some stuff for my trip such as good boots. I found some yesterday but they were almost 60 bucks and no hispanic in his right mind would pay that amount of money for the mud-boots they had in the store.

The captain explained the watch system to us and its really cool. Our shifts change as the days go by so we will have the opportunity to do everything on board at least once. I look forward to being the helmsman (steering the ship) and to be the assistant engineer on the ship. On Monday I met this really cool engineer that works here at SEA and I asked if they had any open positions for a MechE like me. He said they always needed help so maybe in two years I'll be working for SEA.

I will be staying in Waikiki and I already have mapped the best places nearby to watch the world cup matches. Also I got conformation by Jeff that he is indeed going to radio the scores of the match to us in the ocean.

In the meanwhile I have a lot of work to do and the Germany-Ghana game to catch. So I'll try and update you at least once or twice before I leave to hawaii.
