Milo at breakfast
Crazy day, after breakfast off to visit the mangrove protection project, that was all good and interesting, but then we got on a horse and cart. I was expecting something a bit better than a bench on wheels. Saw some birds on the way it was really hot. Later we visited a home of Roy geddes a steel drums maker and player very interesting but a little weird. He showed us how they make the drum or pan as they call it followed by a demo of playing, what an amazing sound. Then we had some food, not sure what it was but it tasted good. Then we went upstairs to listen to cds of his band, oh dear, it went on and on, they wanted us to buy a cd, we didn't want one, so it was a bit of a standoff. One of the strangest evening out we have had in a while.
