Ports of Call: Cadiz, Spain

Aloha Everyone

Misty rain, wet pavement did nothing to deter ship’s passengers and crews from hitting the narrow winding streets of Cadiz.  With a map from the tourist information kiosk, the two of us proceeded towards the center of the Old Town.

J.J. and I stepped into one of the three pharmacies located on the same street. When we asked for a product, we were looking for, the pharmacist inputted the name in his device and inquired if we would accept another brand. Once we agreed, he again inputted the product name and out comes the medication from a shoot. Once we decided on quantity we need, the pharmacist repeated the process. Paying with cash was just as simple.  

The bill was inserted into another machine which calculated and gave our change.

At fresh food marketplace, we each looked at some of our favorite items.

We stopped at the Cathedral square and opted to return to the ship before rain returned. Talking with one of the ship’s crews, I learned that she didn’t get to see anything. The reason is because her 3 hours' time off was between 8:00 to 11:00 am, the time of day when most businesses are still closed in Spain.

Aloha -- Cathi
