The last entry was nearly a month ago.. since i was back in ochie i had another tour of the island, i pretty much slept during the day, shunned anything to do with sightseeing and drank vodka and redbull all night because i think my body had begun to get immune to the red stripe beer.. so over the last few weeks i travelled from ochie to mobay, to negril, to ochie, to st. annes bay to get another month visa extension, to kingston, to mandeville, through sav la mar and the ended back up in negril again.. by this time i was getting too white and the brightness was hurting peoples eyes, something the hustlers pick up on and assume you've just arrived by coming up to you and starting the hustle off with "just arrived?"

So i shunned the all night excesses to work on my tan, amazingly i didn't drink or party for a whole week, apart from one day in the middle..and my tan thankfully came back too.. the break also gave me a chance to remember that i've got a camera and the fact that i'm meant to be a backpacker doing backpackerish things.. that's the reason i headed to treasure beach.

I found treasure beach a little boring apart from the world famous pelican bar which is not even near treasure beach, unfortunatly the owner 'floyd' was ill that day so a stand in stood in forhim, i could've stayed all day as it was pure bliss, i also could tell that it is quite possible to get there a much better way than through treasure beach which would be to stay in Black river, where you can see the bar from, get a route taxi to parrotee and then swim out to the bar..

.. anyway maybe TB had been built up on the travels forums i've visited or that most of the shops and hotels were closed up for september and that no one was really there, apart from 3 couples.. but i felt TB was a bit overated. The frenchmans beach was cool, i spent way to long mucking about with the waves there but i suppose the place just didn't suit me.

I have until 11th of october here in lovely jamdown, i've been picking up my cuba book which means i'm getting itchy feet and it's also getting close to that shit hot party which is the miss colombia week down in Cartengena that i blogged of a while ago so maybe i'll head straight down there as i've been to cuba before.. or maybe i should go back to cuba to get to towns i haven't been to and also because i can remember f**k all about my time there aswell..
