I did call one and got some good information about when the tourist season starts and he could call me when he has more people to set up for some hikes. If you go by yourself it cost a lot more and not as much fun. So that is what I am going to do. The tourist season starts in January. I am looking forward to that!
There is something I have not mentioned as of yet. The bugs had a feast with my body. I have bites all over, some small and some enormous! There is every kind that you can think of and some I never have seen or heard of before. The first rule of living here that I learned was never, and I mean never walk around the house without shoes or something on your feet. Well in the middle of the night last night I had to get up and go to the bathroom. Well I stepped on one and had to get in the shower to wash off my foot. After that I could not get back to sleep.
I will be up early tomorrow and will not get home until way after dark. It is good to go right to sleep after a long day. The nights are almost as hot and muggy as the days are. The hottest month is coming up in Oct. CAN NOT WAIT > LOL! Cannot wait until it cools down just a little. I am sweating up a storm and have to change my clothes twice a day. Well that's all for now. Well that is it for now!
It has been a very interesting last couple of days. Yesterday I took the taxi over to Roseau. And what I mean by a taxi is a van with twelve people crammed together. It takes about an hour and fifteen minutes for the trip. I have posted a picture on the blog. I am sitting all the way in the back with two others. Then you had nine others in front of me. Very hot and muggy and the driver goes like a bat out of hell! The two people sitting on both sides of me fell asleep with their heads leaning on me. What fun>LOL. The cost is nine Caribbean dollars, around three American dollars. All in all I did have a chance to walk around the city by myself. A city of about thirty thousand people. Went to the Department of Forestry and pick up information on all the trails for the island. I was told there that I should take a guide with me on most of the trails because you can get lost very easily. I was also informed that there is a list of guides on the back of the pamphlet that I could call.
