Where I stayed
..the girls were obviously very welcoming, i had one middle aged stripper alternating between sentences of "free to touch" and "buy me a beer" whilst some local wasn't to happy us being there because a stray bottle cap would land in our direction.. The real entertainment was the red stripe reggae sumfest (the map pin for this entry if zoomed down has the arena clearly seen), First night was dancehall night and the place was packed solid. All the major artists were out on stage, elephant man came out in a darth vader outfit along with a lightsaber, and continued his set climbing and jumping on everything and anything in sight
The second night was more international,My highlight was seeing Alison Hinds perform, she got everyone dancing and waving their rags to her soca tunes, shaggy and LL cool J came and wooed the ladies.. and buju also got every person off their arses. The last night i had got used to the long nights so didn't feel as tired the artists included mary j blige, tanya stevens, beres hammond and tarrus riley who didn't have to sing much to "she's royal" as the crowd did it for him.
I thought i had bad luck since arriving in JA, but another traveller "ivan" from luxembourg saw 3 knives in 3 days, ..anyway I'm leaving mobay and heading to Negril next for some R+R, ..'red stripe and reggae'
