I hadn't had anything booked as the cheapest place i could find was 'daniels deck guesthouse' for 38US and i was hoping there was something cheaper in town, after 20mins of searching i found out it was the cheapest so had to check into this overpriced G/H..
Whilst i was in Montserrats libary i came across a travel journal written by some english guy of his journey through the caribbean in 1850.. i'd loved to be able to go back in time to see the islands but as it's not possible i read through his booked to get a feeling. One thing he mentioned was that he stayed in a hotel on nevis near some hot springs that the wealthy and important people of the day bathed in close by. So after i got here my first stop was to check it out and it was still there in all it's colonial glory, the water was very hot and i also found out the temperature and content of it hasn't changed a bit since back then.
I am currently in the downtown internet cafe, the name is a bit is abit ambigous as there doesn't seem to be a downtown as the capital of charlestown just seems to be a medium sized village.
Last night i was at the beach bar called double deuce and seem to remember singing that 'bar bar bumba' song on kareoke which means i was pretty drunk again. i made friends with the owner where she recommened a cheaper guesthouse for 80ec all in just up the road at 'pricilla's'... which is where i'm heading now.
oh, and thanks alice for the donation of 24 pence to my travel fund, i promise not to spend it all at once!
