      So many cute kittens here! Shared a room with 9 other girls, the air con in our room would short circuit the whole block so spent 10 days getting drunk just so I could pass out in the heat of that room haha! The bar was excellent, I learned to really hate Smirnoff ice and love savanna cider! I got pretty good at fusball, or so I thought, and was first on the microphone for karaoke on night 1!

      What to expect in a third world country

      With a group of 30+ young travelers the accommodation was suited to our travelling needs (sufficient dorms, common area for eating- meetings etc, and of course a great pool and bar!) sure the dorms were not in the best state for hygiene (cleanliness) or security (door locks), and most nights those who waited too long would miss out on running water to shower, but for a first time visiting a third world country with a big volunteer group this is what I expected. The staff at BIBS were all very friendly and by the end of our stay we were saddened to leave the community we had grown so fond of. If I was to ever return to Saint Lucia I wouldn't hesitate to stay at BIB's again and would recommend it for anyone else travelling there (would also recommend it be with a group of people however) However the area I thought was quite safe close to shops and plenty of restaurants. Great stay!

      There are continuous signs warning us tourists, that walking inside the game reserve you do so entirely at your own risk. At night, the hippos come out of the water and wander the streets in town, we didn't see any on our way back to the hotel, but they are very dangerous, so you have to be very careful...everyone walks in this town at all hours.

      ... don't have much with us anyway. Setting off, the rule is we all have to walk in a line, no deviation from the line, one behind the other. If we want Ricks attention, we must whistle or click, no talking or shouting, it attracts the wrong attention! We are joined by Jumbolane, a local trekker who along with Rick, is carrying a rifle. They are unloaded, but the bullets hang from their belt in case of a confrontation. Rick leads and Jumbolane takes the rear, with the five of ...

      ... Very smelly! They also had Impala for the dogs at boma tomorrow. Philip laughed as he thought I thought they were going to find dogs responsible for Tosca's death, but nothing so machevelian. They're not sure what killed Tosca only that he got caught under fence with collar and something killed and ate him. Made spaghetti bolognaise for dinner. Philip ate plain pasta and cheese. Discovered Philips mum is a Paediatric Nurse in charge of 2 wards. Bed. Gecko on wall in ...

      We drove for over an hour without seeing any animals in this vast park, and then came across a herd of Zebra walking down the road. They wandered off and five yards from the road they could not be seen. We ...
