After breakfast we were assigned to bus D(ivalicious). This time the bus maven was a large man wearing a bright red dress and heels. He'd hidden a tiara under one of the seats and it was up to us to find it, and whoever did was the honorary diva of the ride. Emily was the winner!
While we were packing up in Santa Maria I struck up a conversation with one of the chiropractic team members and asked her a little bit about what they did and if chiropractors in general could give me some help with some of the minor issues left over from my hip surgery. She encouraged me to stop by the chiro tent at 2 that day. I set up my tent and set my alarm for 1:45 and took a MUCH needed nap. I woke up refreshed and went over to the medical tent and signed up for a chiro appointment. They saw me almost right away. All of the chiro team were in red dresses. While I was laying on the exam table waiting for my chiropractor to come back with some tools I had a very surreal moment. I was watching a bunch of nurses and chiropractors of both genders milling around doing their jobs in red dresses. It was as if I'd entered some sort of strange parallel universe! I couldn't help it, I just started to laugh out loud. After a few minor adjustments to my leg I left feeling even better.
Dinner that night was easy going, and VERY yummy! In particular the Osso Bucco was amazing! The meat just fell right off the bone! After dinner I caught the end of the talent show, not as tragic as I'd hoped, with an amazing opera performance by one of the riders! I just sort of vaguely remember walking back to my tent and crashing almost immediately!
