We have arrived in Barbados safe and sound. It is beautiful here but very hot. We have finally managed to settle in at our apartment.
So far we have found it very expensive, meals are on average $15 - $20 US per person for dinner. The only place where it is cheaper is at KFC!! But the beaches are beautiful, the beer is good and the seaside bars are plentiful. Kris and I have actually been amazed at the quantity of restaurants here. There is a new place to go every night. Our weekends have mostly been going for drives, and going to the beach. Quite a notch down from hiking and climbing throughout the rainforests of Suriname. Hopefully in the coming weekends we will be able to also do some scuba diving.
Our friend Karen (who is also working on this project) is arriving from Guadeloupe this weekend for a while, so we are looking forward to catching up with her.
Unfortunately I won't be able to work here (strict immigration), so I foresee boredom setting in soon. This is my plea to all of our amigos....come visit me!!! We have a nice couch that can sleep one very comfortably.
That's all for now....more soon.
