Today is the last day at sea. I will miss this floating life very much.
In the morning, I joined another session of card-making. Today’s card was different from the last, although I still do not know if I should post them out or leave them to yellow.
Around noon, the ship passed Sicily. It’s rather a surprise that Sicily is the first Italian town I would see when I thought that it was going to be Civitavecchia [pronounced: Chi-vita-veh-kia (I didn’t know that and said it as it is spelled.]
The island had a long long coast and it seemed like we sailed forever before we stopped seeing its dotted shores.
In the evening, the restaurant staff performed a lip-synced song of farewell. I felt teary, more sad about the thought of needing to pay for food for the next few months.[Anna Karenina is on three different channels as I write. Yikes!]
