Got up this morning to dull skies and a little rain. This is a good start isn't it?.
It's still about 20 degrees warmer than it is at home so we shouldn't complain I suppose. As this is a self catering holiday in a Villa we needed some food and supplies so we went to wal mart. A sort of supermarket come football ground. No one seemed to wear a uniform so we couldn't work out whether it was staff serving us or just some guy off the street. He never spoke or smiled and seemed to put each item we bought into it's own personal carrier bag. We came away with more bags in this one shop than I ever use in a year at home. Everything was so cheap ! Same looking foods just different names. As they paid at the cash out I looked at a notice board on the wall. It was a list of missing kids, complete with names ages and pictures. Not just one, loads of them.
Tried some american tv when we got back. Most of British telly is actually American shows so there was nothing unusual about it apart from the fact that it was 90% commercials and 10% tv shows. There is a cage around the pool (i assume to keep creepy crawlies out )which gives that prison exercise yard feel about it. But the view beyond is great.
Later in the day we went to disneys magical kingdom. If we had dressed for English weather we would have been fine but unfortunately we dressed for Florida so were freezing our bollocks off. The weather was dull and cold. Like Blackpool in November.
There are an alarming amount of people driving around in mobility scooters and super sized fatties, but it's hardly a surprise as there is no sight of healthy food anywhere and if I'm honest I'm developing a craving for salad and fruit. I'm all sugard out and I'm sick of fatty grub, as nice as it might be.
Went on a couple of rides, some sort of safari where we had a running commentary from a man who sounded like kermit the frog on helium. He was great at his job but I couldn't understand him. Interestingly I'm having trouble understanding a lot of What they are saying when serving me because they talk so fast, normal Americans are ok but sometimes they can't understand me for the same reason so I must remember slow down a bit when talking back. I'm getting to many blank expressions when I ask for simple things. It's at times like this you realise how many things you know are described by their product name rather than the actual thing.
Waited 60 minutes for the expedition everest ride. I was freezing cold and fed up in the end. But the 3 minutes of a ride was fun.
By the time we set off back to the villa I was really really cold and just wanted to get home. But then we took a wrong turning and got lost!! One wrong turn and it's about 20 miles to the next turn off. So we stopped for a meal to warm up instead. I was sort of chatted up by the waitress who though I was cute. I think telling me she had three kids, asking for my facebook name and email address before telling me to come back and see her during my stay constitute a chat up. Everyone around the table thought it was funny. Never gonna happen of course. I don't know why I didn't put a stop to it straight away. It kept my dad amused if nothing else I suppose and when you know your never gonna see that person ever again there are times when you just let it go over your head.
Anyway home now and sitting with a drink bored now. Sorry about the long written posts. I have time on my hands. Let's try some pictures in future eh?
Roll on the summer sun. Where are you?
