Wednesday Photo Nights #8 : Jersusalem : Could you eat olives from the Garden of Gethsemane?

Sitting here at Frankfurt Airport and waiting on my connection to Helsinki, I was munching on a plate of Olives and it got me to thinking and wondering perversely, if anyone had eaten olives from the Garden of Gethsemane. These olive trees are reputed to be more than 900 years old. I would figure that if there was anywhere you could have bought those olives, it would be the Via Dolorosa Going through all the alleys and shops around … you would figure it should have been possible … right? Going through those pictures, there are many places I want ... Read More »

Wednesday Photo Nights #7 : Trinidad at FIFA World Cup 2006

Wednesday Photo Nights #7 : Trinidad at FIFA World Cup 2006

As a Trini growing up in the late 80′s and 90′s … I have two moments of disappointment. The first was the series loss of the West Indies to Australia in ’95. The second traumatic incident was Trinidad’s loss to the Americans on November 19th, 1989 in Port of Spain. This match is actually in the FIFA list of all time classic qualifiers – except that WE LOST!! It was the first time, I’ve seen a nation’s collective psyche physically crushed … I bawled like a little girl that day, like I had lost a parent or something. I think ... Read More »

Quiet daytripping in St. Kitts …

Quiet daytripping in St. Kitts …

It had been some years since I had been to St.Kitts but I remember it being a quiet island in comparison to other islands I had been to. So in one full day in St. Kitts, you’re limited to the following below (a driver and tour should cost about 25$ per person … since there is precious little to do around). I would definitely ignore all the tourist brochure crap on St. Kitts unless you’re looking for a quiet time and good golfing … there really isn’t anything more than a day’s worth of stuff to do – you could ...

Good morning and fuck you “IslandPeople” … Girlpower 2012 fete review – February 17th, 2012

Good morning and fuck you “IslandPeople” … Girlpower 2012 fete review – February 17th, 2012

I had to think long and hard about how to express and post my utter contempt for IslandPeople and their horrible organization at last night’s event GirlPower. I for one will NEVER ever attend or RECOMMEND an IslandPeople event again – in fact for the next three years, I’ll set a reminder to write a post to remind people that IslandPeople doesn’t give a shit about them and their hard earned money. You can e-mail these jackasses here: info@islandpeoplemas.com – of course, don’t expect a response. Here was the preamble in the Guardian … if you know you can’t deliver, ... Read More »

Moka Explosion 2012 – What can $1500 buy for you?

Moka Explosion 2012 – What can $1500 buy for you?

After all the Carnival festivities … it’s back to the rest of fetes for the Carnival season prior. As much as I might complain about the prices of this fete every year … it does guarantee a phenomenal all inclusive experience and is one of the two “Be Seen” fetes on Carnival Sunday (The other on being Brian Lara’s shindig). In keeping with the price increases over the year … there were limited early bird tickets for $1000 but then that went up to $1200 and then $1300 … outside the door the scalpers started asking for $1500 for a ...
