That sounds nice Totally agree that getting ashore should be part of cruising life too.

No, Lauralee is right... we're also here in greece. it is REAALY tough even for me who cooks all the time to justify it vis a vis expense vs a restaurant. There's a place a few min walk from the beach, a proper nice taverna (not a street food stall) that will grill you up what looks like a 1 inch x 8 inch diameter swordfish for 10 bucks, impossible for one person to finish. At the fishmonger that fish would cost 20 min. and not include veggies, fuel or time. Their other dishes are equally ridiculous, 6 bucks for a double breast grilled chicken with sides, etc. 2 -3 person portions sold as 1. Last night elsewhere we got 4 big pork pita gyros with all the fixings for 2.50 each. 10 bucks dinner for 3 and we were stuffed. It's crazy around here if you look hard enough

Maybe you didn't pay the federal and state taxes first as required and it all went to late fees and penalties. Otherwise I'm sure it would have arrived by now.

I'm Thinking that most of this months costs were already cooked in last month.

However, I know how good and expensive the food is in Nola.



So my guess is somewhere in the $2900 to $3100 range.


But, please donate my winnings to a worthy cause! I just can't bear to pay anymore Taxes!
