We are in Cadiz on the day before Easter Sunday. The streets are crowded with people and there is a market set up in the main square at city hall. We are one of 4 cruise ships docked here today and we’re the smallest one, to boot! But we have the premier pier! We are directly across the street from all the action!!!! It’s an easy stroll.
Our goal today was to find decent WiFi so we could update all the devices. The ship has had a terrible time supplying any decent broadband and passengers are threatening mutiny!!!! Well, they’re threatening to withhold funds—who wants to pay for high-speed only to, more often than not, have NOTHING. It’s a bit of a problem. So, we took a taxi to the coffee shop at El Corte Ingles (where we knew the WiFi was excellent) and enjoyed cappuccinos and unlimited broadband. Sometimes, life is really good!!!! Completing that task, we explored the neighborhood around the department store and found a park under the Constitution of 1812 Bridge (Puente de la Constitucion de 1812.)
From there, we headed back to the town hall square, shopped the market, and had our afternoon libation. We would have stayed for the Easter Parade, but we had to get back to the ship for the monthly “Emergency Drill”. We set sail shortly thereafter.
