On the day that we drove to the beach Cas Abao, we stopped at a little restaurant. As we were sitting there eating, these college kids got out on the ledge and before we knew it, they had jumped from the cliff! It was about 30 to 35 feet high. So we though Jery should do it too. He was totally up for it (you would have NEVER got me to do that). I didn't get a very good picture of him doing it, showing the height he was at when he jumped, because he thought I said I was ready and I wasn't! But this is what I got! The picture below is of him jumping and the one above is him in the water.

This is the town of Punda behind us. The town was totally cute. According to the tour guide, at one time all the buildings were painted white at one time. The govenor was always getting headaches from the glare and decided from then on all the buildings needed color. So this is what you get now. It's beautiful. The colors are crazy...houses painted pink and green, red and blue, so many different colors. I cannot picture that happening in the states, but here it looked so cool!
This is the floating pontoon bridge. When a ship needed to go by, the bridge was moved to the side. A motor of some sort moved it, but the bridge itself is on boats...so it floats to the side for the ship to pass by. The part of town behind Mimi, Jery and the kids is Otrabanda, which means 'the other side'. We would have liked to spend more time in the town, but it's hard with the kids.
This is Punda.

On this particular day we had gone to the SeAquarium. We took a taxi from there to town to eat. When we got out of the taxi, this window/wall is what we saw. Breccan says "What's that for?" I said "I don't know". He says, "That's for the Teletubbies!" It looks just like the doorway to the Teletubbies house!
