At the port we embarked on the Insignia, which would be our home for the next 3 weeks.
It was Kate's first experience cruising, and she was super excited.
After we met Pat on the boat, we went out to explore the city. We passed an immigrants monument, giving Kate a chance to "join" them, and then toured the city, which was getting ready for the famous Rio Carnival. Kate took the opportunity to ham it up some more; after some more exploring through some sketchy places we went back to the ship to sleep.
