The Tropics was a family hotel, so there were families with kids staying there. We had friends. They changed every week or so; nobody had as extended a stay as we did. Still, kids are kids. Over the course of the trip, I had made plenty of friends in only one day; they or we or both were somewhere else the next day. So this was a level of stability I hadn't experienced in months.
