Where I stayed
so before i no it old rally driver in the cockpit has delivered me into port maria, i had to apologise to him that i wanted to get out in oracabessa but that he could drop me off at the towns bus park (which is normally quite central).
I found my way to 'nix nax' guesthouse, which was a deal at 1050 jm dollars a night, as i was worn out from too much travelling, i leaned back and fell asleep to irie fm a whole 10hours till the next morning.. this is when i went out in search of the stingrays that i'd watched briefly on local jamiacan tv.. stingray city was the place which is located on james bond beach.. i bumped into Mojo.. who was the main star from the tv and also my stingray guide for the day.. apparently he got the name when he was a kid playing some dice gambling game and not sure for Mohammed Joseph as i thought..
anyway i'm sure this places buisness took a nose dive after steve irwins death, i didn't mention the aussie whilst i was there as i'm sure he has heard it a little too often and was probabaly tired of down playing the dangers of his pet stingrays.. i was pretty scared entering the water, you can tell from my face in the pics.. especially the one where he's waving the poisonous tail near my face telling me "look it's ok to touch".. err no thanks, i did touch the end of the tail past the poisonous bit briefly, but was leaning as far back as possible.. we then when for a swim and the stingray, called 'Reggae Girl' followed us along like a faithful dog and allowed us another chance to hold her from the water.. the whole experience was pretty cool and i can definately recommened it, i only wish i had my underwater camera so i could have taken it in with me.
