    How to rock a 4 hour layover in Barbados!

    Thanks for nothing Eric Williams … why a “State of Emergency” can’t solve Mr Gerry Mander’s problems

    10 thoughts about Stockholm

    Having grown up in Trinidad in the 90’s, I came to know two things about Sweden Abba Roxette I thought that all Swedes rocked out hard to Dancing Queen. In fact, I pictured Socialists dancing the night away in glorious free hospitals all revelling in how wonderful their lives are, while smoking Gauloises and drinking Sav (which btw – tastes …

    Monday Morning Consultant – Bali Edition II – W Hotel Bali Review
