trouble in paradise


Here is a tip for you devil-may-care world travelers out there: Check the weather just before going to your destination if you are going there to enjoy some good weather and not something cultural. We only found out last night about the hurricane sweeping through this part of the world, and although it has been downgraded to a tropical depression as it approaches us, we are drenched.

Stijn’s mom has apparently been following all news about this area like a hawk and was very worried for his safety, so we decided to seek higher ground and go to a concrete hotel a little further inland. It costs more, but has AC and satellite TV, giving us movies to watch in the downpour while we aren’t drinking (or drinking, or, say, drinking) or in the internet cafe updating my blog.
