Yo, time flies. What a difference a year makes. Having fun, a lot of fun here in paradise. International cricket just came and went with ice cold Kubuli - I hate beer but there's something about cricket, peer pressure, an Emirates chiller to hold it in and beer with slivers of ice in it that turns hate to love, I think. And I also fell in love with 'Doubles' but I'm sure the description won't translate so take my word for it that bread, chickpeas, sauce and mango chutney all wrapped up together for only US$2 is the best scoff ever. Yep, I know, just take my word for it - on day two I did bring my own fork into the ground though because they are a tad sloppy. On site handbag check didn't pick it up but did moan about my lippy. Clearly wielding lippy is far more dangerous than posh pronged fork. AP photographers and Reuters journalists made the most of the Villa and couldn't believe their luck. I couldn't believe how many crates of Kubuli we had to remove at the end. Best of all they left cartons of Starbucks ice-cream in the freezer - usually I'm blessed with some mac & cheese. Next there's a wedding. Brave souls - swapping the cabana on the beach in full view of everyone in the Dominican Republic to a secluded spot in Dominica but what an amazing spot hey - look at this spectacular view.
