across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively

The processing (boat assignment, paying) went by fast for us as we were the first batch in the morning. The tour itself is less than 2 hours; ours was 1:45 long. Great experience though, we had a blast!
