Off to work today. I head to the lounge and have some breakfast. Things are a bit different here. They use condensed milk for cream. That is a taste you must have to acquire. They also must think that marinating cantelope in grapefruit juice is good also. I don't. I had a difficult time masking my surprise when I tasted it. Someone was watching me (who had already gone through the experience) and started laughing hysterically. So what else is new!

I exit the lobby and the doorman hails a cab for me. It was a brand new Cadillac station wagon type thing. Really quite nice... until I had to sit in it for more than a minute. It was already warm and the air conditioning was not on and the windows were rolled down. However, it turned out it was a good thing the windows were down. The car and a most unusual aroma. I don't think I want to know what it was.

Suprisingly there was a lot of traffic. Unlike yesterday, the road was packed. Well, I exaggerate. There are probably about 5 roads. The drivers play a game called Double Dare. Someone will pull out in front of another car as if it is daring the driver to hit him. The driver of the second car double dares the first one to stay there because they might not stop before hitting the first car. All this, and I am sitting on the inside of the street - you drive on the left here. This just blows my little mind. I keep a death grip on the door handle thinking we are going to be in a head on collision!

I make it to the office.... kind of like the commercial for that movie where the kid runs out of the car, flings herself to the ground and exclaims "LAND"!

I spend 8 hours at the client site. Most of this time is typical for an island client. It is spent waiting for someone to do something so I can do something. It is a good thing I am here all week. We will get about 2 days worth of work done!
