Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) I hope you will join me as we share different markets across the globe. I always look forward to seeing what you send me! It is amazing to see so many different markets and different cultures.
I have been to so many new places lately! The curiosity that is attached to foreign ingredients, different produce or any product sold. So, yes! I would love to see yours! Don't forget to take photos wherever you happen to be shopping - whether it be the grocery store, the local marketplace or even an art gallery. Wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise. Be different if you wish! It does not have to be a traditional market! We will love it! I promise you! Don't forget to use the hashtag #MarketFriday and @dswigle.
But first, a flower. Always a flower.
May I gaze upon you, always and a day?*
This is one of the many lounges and bars they have on the ship. First of all, this is the Anthem of the Seas and it sails out of New Jersey. All of the ships have classes (according to their size) and Anthem is in the Quantum Class of Royal Caribbean ships. There is only one class larger than Quantum and that is the Oasis-class ships owned by Royal also. Their Symphony of the Seas has 18-decks and is 1,188 feet.
That's a lot of ship.
Please leave the link to your post on here so it can easily be found by others. They will all be in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you! ❤
Wave technology is used in the Flow Rider. I cannot tell you how many times I have bitten the dust (or water) trying to stand up. I have made it, perhaps 1/3 of the time. Perhaps not even that high. But, if you can stand on a surfboard, you should be able to manage this.
Jump up and give it a try. You know you want to!
Who doesn't love bumper cars? This is the first ship that I have been on that had bumper cars. It is a huge hit with young and old alike. You should see grandpa ramming grannie in his car. Incidentally, the pink one is mine. Right next door, you can sign up for a trapeze class. You climb up to the platform and practice falling and then they teach you to swing. Yes, I did. Yes, it was... Totally cool.
The gym! As if you couldn't guess! It takes up a whole floor and has every piece of equipment imaginable, and then some. You may eat every six hours while you are cruising, but, they expect you to work it while you are there.
The iFly! You know I did! Proof! You take a few minute class and they let you pop in the tube and try your luck at it! They are there to help you stay face down and not flail all over the place. Such an amazing piece of equipment. It uses a machine to simulate the experience of skydiving without the fear. If you get the opportunity, you have to try it!
Note: As an aside, I won! - it was only $1.75, but it is mine
But, then again...
So the joy may touch your soul*

i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?*
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.*
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
