Sarah Jane and Mikie (the one with the monkeys from a previous post). He lives a life that defines the island style. Usually smiling with barefeet and on the way to the beach. Don’t let that fool you though, he’s an extremely hard worker and earns his play time!
Ryan (the stand up paddle boarding king I described in an earlier post) is on the left standing next to his partner in crime. Jason is what I think of as a truly happy guy. I can honestly say to my memory, I haven’t seen him in a bad mood since we met. He greets you with that genuine smile and a bear hug with every encounter.
If you look closely towards the right, you can see a rope swing. Records say that the max was 12 people at one time. The first person swings out and monkey climbs as quickly as possible to make room for the next. As the rope returns, the next person jumps on and starts to climb. This continues until there’s no room or someone falls. Extremely entertaining to watch different techniques!
I’m sure you noticed the “not so clear” skies. Meet Ernesto. This friendly fella heard wind (pun intended) of the traditional party that’s supposed to send hundreds of dancing people into the streets. Well, he got a little fussy since nobody invited him, so with only 24 hours left until we were supposed to be covered in paint he decides to show up and make a scene. He passed through with only a threat and left us with a calm after the storm for a night to be remembered. That post will be coming soon!
On the flight from Miami to Bridgetown I sat in front of two gentlemen that were here to visit Max (on the far left) and capture as much of what Barbados has to offer… Including a new friend, that’s me! Standing next to Max all the way from Italy, is Leonardo. Philipe, a Columbian is on the far right.
