A post about being in Barbados

I tried to come up with a witty title … something like Bajan Dreams Making Motron, or something equally bad, but finally decided on something straight-forward. Yes, I’m in Bridgetown, Barbados. I’m currently drinking some Earl Grey tea, looking out over a cloudy, rainswept Carlisle Bay. It’s really hot, but with the rain, there’s not really much to do by the beach. And that’s fine, because I’m a little sunburned from yesterday.
We’re looking into doing a little diving, and we’ve signed up for the Mount Gay rum distillery tour. I’ve walked around Bridgetown already, been offered weed by a jet-ski operator (why does this keep happening to me?) and have already dunked in the ocean.
And everyone speaks English, which is a new and great thing for my experiences in the Caribbean. I want to move here — buy land and/or a boat, and live here. It’s fantastic, even with the rain.
