June 8... Kich and Diana

Ever since I was little, I always had the dream that I wanted to be a dolphin trainer when I grew up. I was discouraged when I went to SeaWorld and saw that they had to swim in the water, because I was terrified. I gave up that dream, but I never stopped loving those cute little creatures. Today I got the opportunity to come face-to-face with them. That's right, today's new thing was swimming with dolphins. (Kich and Diana) It was so amazing! They are so intelligent, and so strong. We got to kiss them, hug them, let them carry us, and let them push us out of the water in the air by our feet! Then we got free time to just pet them and see them close up. It was so amazing. Not to mention, the trainer we had was totally hot.

After that, we retired to our resort to eat at the buffet, and I got to cross another thing off my list... I ordered Mexican Coffee. (I know, right? My sins are piling up...) Nah, but seriously, it was so cool. They pour the coffee in the cup, and then in a seperate cup they pour in a tiny bit of alcohol. I guess that stuff is pure, because they light it on fire, and pour it back and forth. It looks pretty radical... liquid fire! Then they drain what's left into the coffee and serve it. I had just a sip, and it wasn't half bad. He put in a lot of cream, and it was pretty sweet. But I don't like the smell or taste of coffee, and I still didn't like the alcohol taste either. But it was definitely cool to watch!!

And here is a cute pic of me and my dad. While we were at the buffet, I had a chance to try one other new thing: I ate a prawn. It resembled a lobster, and I didn't really know how to eat it, but it was still pretty yummy. Yay for prawns!
