We took the red eye to Miami out of Vegas, and barely made our flight.
|Seriously. He took this as we heard, "Last call for Harwell" over the PA.|
|Not a bad view of the city from my window seat.|
We got to get on the boat at 11. We slept the afternoon away since we hadn't slept at all the night before.

|Ian and Alan played giant chess the first night. Ian won. That's the thing about your dad making a deal that you can get out of being grounded if you beat him in chess. You get good.|
|Ian and his mom on the shuttle.|
|At the entrance to the city.|
|Our tour guide, Humberto, was really knowledgeable. I loved listening to him.|
|The main temple is behind us.|
|Just chillin on a rock in the shade. It was really hot there.|
|Yeah, I'd build a city here too.|
|The first full week we'd spent together in a long time.|
|One of 8 stop lights in the entire country.|
|After hiking about half a mile, we got on our bright green tubes and got ready to go.|
|It was pitch black other than our headlamps, so it was hard to get good pictures.|
There was a waterfall in the middle of the cave.
|The best part was we only had to give our guide a $2 tip. I swear we spent more on tips than anything else.|
We spent the third day at Mahogany Bay in Roatan, Honduras. It was a little island off the coast about 10 miles long. We wanted to snorkel, and after realizing it would cost us $100 to get to the beach in a cab, we decided to rent a car and explore the island. It was my favorite day because I felt like we got a taste of the real island. There was a definite difference between the tourist side of the island and the place where the natives live. It was also the first time Ian drove in a foreign country.
|Mahogany bay. The whole island looked like a post card.|
|A shipwreck out the window of our boat.|
|Ian cruisin in our little Kia.|
|Just big enough for the four of us.|
|On the "native" side of the island.|
|Ian found a conch shell.|
|Yeah, it was worth it.|
|Headed over on the tender.|
|Welcome to Grand Cayman|
|"Don't tell Cori about the sea urchins"|
The last day we had a day to kill in Miami, so we rented a Charger and went around town.
Ian was searching for lunch and found an Argentine Panaderia. He got us a bunch of empanadas, just like he used to eat as a missionary. They were delicious!
