It is hard to find decent cheap accommodation but having the laptop is essential here as the tourism offices are little more than useless.
The island is lovely and the people inquisitive about me and any foreigner, cant help feeling I am wearing a Pound sign around my neck and I just mean cash to them, if only they knew I wasnt a rich westerner. I suppose in comparison I am but mostly they are happy to chat to an English speaking guy and I can see they are eager to learn more and practice there English and I know why they wish to, so they can escape the own poor live's here but it is much harder for them to leave here than it was for me to come here.
Red tape confronts them at every turn, multiple copies of documents, Cv's, passports are near impossible to obtain and the whole foreign tourist trade only seems to infuriate there efforts.
I cant feel sorry for them as they live in a beautiful area but here I am escaping the UK for the same reasons ?
There are many British, Australians, Americans, Germans all with the same thing in common they come here to live cheaply and find a local woman to live with and look after them, each to there own.
