15 MAY 2010 - DAY 4 OF 4 AT SEA/IT WAS AUTUMN WHEN WE WENT TO SLEEP & SPRING WHEN WE WOKE UP
We crossed the equator this morning around 5 AM, and this afternoon they had a ceremony for the “pollywogs”-those people who crossed the equator for the first time on a ship. Four passengers and two crew were chosen to go through the initiation ceremony and to represent all pollywogs. First they made them kiss the navel of the “baby” after smearing what looked like chocolate sauce all over his belly, then they got smeared with chicken, eggs, Jello, and whipped cream, and had flour pour all over them. It was fun to watch.
Aside from that we did the usual-slept in until 9 AM, ate, cross stitched/read, played trivia, ate, cross stitched/read, played trivia, exercised (I rode on the stationary bike in the fitness room because it is so hot, and I started getting shin splints yesterday), watched “No Reservations” (cute movie), ate, watched “It’s Complicated” which had a dud of an ending, and went to be anticipating land tomorrow.

NOTE: We have come to the conclusion that the malaria medicine we had to take exacerbated the motion sickness we experienced on Saturday and Sunday, along with making us tired, and causing headaches. The last pills we took were on Monday, and we have been feeling much better the past three days
