On day 4, we went to one of those time share pitches. We've done them before -- we're practically experts in team work on them. We had no intention to buy, of course, but we got a big discount on all of our activities for the week.

When we got back to the hotel, Mark wasn't feeling too good. Too much food, too many mai-tais, too much dancing:
