Flag of Barbados  ,
Monday, November 13, 2006

This morning i was woken up by all the activity going on onboard at 5 in the morning, up i got a cuppa and saw the harbour pilots climbing aboard.. a little cliche'd but it was weird seeing land and new people again.. geting to barbados was quite an achievement, seeing the bajan flag flying made me feel like i've definatly started my trip and the routine onboard the ship was over and i could explore in my own time and rhythm.

me and larry shared a taxi to our respective hotels.. i've got into a 32 bajan dollar a night place called 'the rio guesthouse' run by 4 london girls, the place is cool but i couldn't check in till 2, so went of for a beer round at divis hotel, my first 'banks' (barbados owned) beer went down well along with the conversation with the bar girl called gloria, she had a gap tooth and i think a couple of gold ones in there aswell..

a few banks later and i was feeling quite tired so got all checked into my single fan cooled room and got a little kip.. my rooms got bars on the window and and safe that i'm having problems with getting to lock, a little refreshed i decided to venture out onto the balcony to meet the others guests that could be about.. a guy called mark whos traveled all over the world was there, he'd just split with his girlfriend and was taking a break over barbados for a couple of weeks, luckily he was a drinker so went out for a quick munch at a local convienence store which sold caribbean meals and i chose the stew and rice for $12bds.. to get bajan dollars into pounds i've been dividing it by 3 so my meal cost 4pound and the banks beer 70p.. We ventured down to a little rum shack at the end of the st. lawrence gap (which is a litle strip of tourist resorts and pubs/clubs).. the rum shops called the watering hole run by a little woman about 4 foot something who is quite a character.. since being up since 5 with only the littlest of naps i couldn't make it past half nine drinking so retired to bed.
