Life is a short journey, filled with emptiness and pain. Get all the sailing and booty you can.

Are those broken coconuts.

Hope they aren't shrunken heads.

Good job, racky. I need some culture.

You've sailed thousands of miles and think you've gotten away from it all....and then a damn Mickey'ds in the anchorage. The reality of cruising...sometimes.

That is the Mickey Ds in Pago Pago is it not? There is another one near the airport as well. Both are quite big and fancy. We actually used the one in your pic since it had free Wifi (now that I think of it we have used McDonald's Wifi in several spots - Sint Maarten and Papeete come to mind. Not sure how cultural it is, but does say something about globalization.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Yep, Pago Pago, but there was no drive thru for dinghies and canoes. I prefer a bit of the whole roasted pig myself...

How about this one? Anyone able to identify what this is on barbie? No hints as to location until people have had a chance.

We have a winner - but you are from Brazil so that gives you an advantage. These are indeed cuy which are apparently a delicacy in Ecuador. Most simple meals (chicken, rice, and salad) are around $3 but cuy was $17.

For those not familiar with cuy (as I was) - let me just say that those are particularly large guinea pigs.
