    as we all know, capt. hdz is hispanic (like me) so the colombia has been "molded" to remind all the hispanics of home.

    btw, if you think this a stereotype, then leave because this topic isn't for you...

    1. the friday special is the super tosada (6in x 4in) with guacamole, chicken, and sour cream served with mexican soda

    2. tamales (chicken, beef, bean, and pork) are breakfast options everyday of the yr and not just at x-mas

    3. if your sink or whtever breaks, don't need to call maintenance since the person next door knows how to fix it

    4. rice and beans ARE always served with lunch along with torillas de maiz or harina...you get 2 of each

    5. half of the ship is painted with murals depicting of all things, the mexican revolution with zapata and all them...

    6. 7+ ppl packed in almost every room even though the ship is very roomy, but compadres always stick together...

    7. every one speaks in spanish, even though they know english, so wht?

    8. tripp got diarrhea when he had the guesado de puerco con salsa roja...

    9. half of the ship looks like the inner city...

    10. edward james olmos is your hero...

    11. all the border ppl speak "spanglish" even the capt

    12. ll and y don't confuse you. ex. pollo, ayer

    13. i'm the guera...

    14. selena's music blares at 90 decibals thoughout the ship.. bibibibi bumbum. including reggeton...yuck!

    15. every wkend, we all dance to the rancheras, cumbias, nortenos, etc

    16. the shuttle craft has hydraulics, a cadillac grill, extra lights, and a huge wing

    17. everyone one is gungho about easter and luke warm about x-mas...

    18. religious statues (even death, sadly, a big thing in the inner city ) everywhere...

    19. half of the fridges as stocked with coke-a-cola and nothing else...

    20. the in ship panareria serves ginger bread cochinos and the baker has never even heard of gingerbread ppl and when asked he says "QUE?" pan estillo de monterray...

    21. engineering is known as vulcanizora

    22. you use "che" to mildy insult a person... ie. capt. hdz said "che" tripp because he was taking to long in the closet with reed...

    23. best. game. ever. loteria saturdays!!!!! y buena con la sandia!!!! esquina con el catrin!

    24. enchiladas are made right in your face. enchiladas de chile con carne for me plz...

    25. corn in the cup (corn, cheese, mayo, and chile de limon) served in a cup at snack time

    26. everyone drinks limonada by the gallon...IT'S WITH LIMES!!!! NEVER LEMONS!!!!!!!!

    27. there's 1 puerto rican for every 8 mexicans. (i'm basing this on my group since 8 mexican americans and one pr american chick...)

    28. menudo sundays. YUCK!

    29. for some reason, there are chickens on board...

    30. "swirl" meaning half of the ppl in group are white and brown

    31. occasionally, the brown person is made fun of by the white person, but that's ok, since brown person also makes fun of the white person too.

    32. the only filipino on board is considered mexican because he has a spanish first and last name and also speaks spanish even though he looks asian. (true story for the filipino kid's at school...)

    33. the capt. fav. show is "casos de la vida real" on univision...

    34. all of this left tripp in a culture shock...

    35. devote catholics everyone & mass is only held in spanish.

    btw, lobo's fav. show is also "casos de la vida real"

    Don't forget the standard issue waterbeds and salsa music for the cabins. And your favorite show is "Todos Mi Cocinas," it would appear. Maybe Chef really is un vato (grande).

    Pretty funny to read and imagine it onboard of our ship. One big siesta? Why the hell not?
    P.S/ By the way, Tucker LOVES mexican food and would never have a "diarrhea"

    What no quesadillas or flan. or tortas. And everything including lonches(sandwiches) is served with massive amounts of chile(and im not talking about tabasco sauce, but the seeds of cayenne peppers sometimes mixed with green chile sauce or pico de gallo. Plus must have a bbq pit on hand for special requests. (tortillas or meat heated or cooked on a grill)
