You will need my sat phone number which you can get by emailing me. Although the screen will say 160 chars - I only get the first 108 (...its the usual IT screw up)

From Zumba to ……

Well the “Spice Island” chapter is drawing to a close. Enterprise has been here since March, and the crew and the boat are fully rested and ready for a new chapter.

What have the crew go up to..? It seems we have done everything. We have visited the rum factory (& sampled), the chocolate factory (& sampled); the waterfalls (& swum); we have completed 2 hashes (& sweated); we have been to the sculptor park (& snorkelled); we have endured loud loud LOUD music on very bus, food stand and beach party (& danced)….Smile

….having done all this what have we left……damn hot days – too sweltering to do even one simple job – and damn, damn, damn HOT nights – again – too hot to do anything – I mean anything ! …. then the rainy season came upon the flock. Rain doesn’t begin to describe the feeling of having an ocean turned upside down over your head…. then the sun comes out – everything dries up …. and your flip flops melt.

Unfortunately, we will not be here for Carnival which starts next week.

I am sorry that I wont get to see the Jab-Jab.

This is the commemoration of the end of slavery signified by the Jab-Jab rituals

…..and then of course the LOUD music, and Oil Down.

 

 

 

 

A few memories, from the thousands, that we modern travellers inevitably hoard…for no known reason…
