Weekend Roundup -- 04-18 (for letter "D")

Weekend Roundup
Starts with "D" ~~  A Favorite ~~ Details

(1)  Starts with "D": Dinosaur and Dragon start with "D".  We found this little fellow at Puntarenas, our seaport in Costa Rica.   
Our itinerary is pictured below with "Details"
 Actually it is a friendly Iguana that roams the streets in town.  We saw two, both were in the grass over by our ship.  We did not go on an excursion here, we had done that before, an afternoon trip into the rain forest.

 (2)  A Favorite:   For this post, our ship, the Crown Princess is the favorite.  It was a large ship but we needed the room going from Los Angeles, California, to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Google link). 

Our favorite stop was at the Falkland Islands where we took a trip through the marshes out to the Penguin Preserve.  It was wonderful, a 31 day trip.  We had a balcony, it was needed to keep from feeling cooped up. (Pictures 1)(Pictures 2)(Google Pictures)

(3)  Details:  Details of our 31 day cruise are summarized (can you summarize details?  Oxymoron?) by reading our Itinerary in conjunction with viewing the accompanying maps.


4.a.  LagniappeDatsun pickup.  I had two Datsun pickups similar to this one.  One was a 1973 and the other a blue 1975.  I drove them to work and when I got the '75 I gave the '73 to my Daughter, Susie.  Later I obtained the grill from the '73 and have it hanging in the garage.                                      4.b.  LagniappeDatsun emblem (Starts with "D".  It was found at

 4.c.  LagniappeDonuguan.  That food was on this sign in front of a restaurant up the street.  All I know is that it should be Filipino Food as the sign says.

According to Wikipedia (read more), "Dinuguan is a Filipino savory stew of pork offal (typically lungs, kidneys, intestines, ears, heart and snout) and/or meat simmered in a rich, spicy dark gravy of pig blood, garlic, chili (most often siling mahaba), and vinegar ..."  We might call it "blood stew."
