This year, because Peter is still quite poorly, we decided to take it really easy. We wandered over to the market place where we had a drink and Peter bought a hat. It's such a shame that every time we've come here it's been a Sunday and everywhere has been closed. I suspect this place is alive and vibrant during the week days.
We took a few photographs before making our way to the posh touristy bit where we met with some of the other lecturers, and had another drink. We didn't stay long, and now we are at the marina we found last year, enjoying the cheap wi-fi. I've had me lunch here, local cuisine, stewed chicken and rice, which had a creole flavour to it. (Peter wasn't up to it, although he didn't mind eating half of mine), and we've sat in the sun whilst Peter worked. I like it here.
Some pictures for you.
