Day 19: Hooray for Vodafone!

19.01.09

I stayed at the Inna City guesthouse, rose with the lark and headed down to the docks. All the boats were not leaving until Wednesday. I tried all the shipping agents. Wednesday. Too many days on the one island – I arrived on Saturday night! I was really really stuck.

I wandered the baking hot streets for hours looking for somebody to help, but there was nobody. Then I got a text from Lorna. She had made contact with a woman called Annette Callender of Trump Luxury Tours who might just be able to help me.

Annette had many contacts and I was assured that something would come up tomorrow.

A good bit of news – I got my mobile Internet USB stick from Vodafone, so it’s a little easier for me to get online now.

Ended up going out on the lash with a group of Merchant seamen (and woman) and a crazy cool guy from Trinidad called Marcus. We had a few drinks and I stuffed my face with street food before heading home for an ‘early’ night about half twelve.
