Caramba

Sorry for the abrupt disappearance, but I took a little unscheduled trip down to the birthland (dats be Barbados)to take care of some business. But it' ein de trip or the business that interesting, it's how ah got there. You see I travelled to B'dos via dis lettle handy dandy here Well there is a first for everything and this was definitely a first class experience not to mention ride. So off I went on Monday morning returning last night. aye caramba!!!!!!

But, let me tell you, now I see and feel what it's like live and be amongst the big boys. Walk straight up yuh yuh ride, get in and be on yuh way. Kinda like walking into yuh garage, getting into your car and driving off, only this time it's walking up tuh yuh hanger, getting into yuh jet and flying off. We made a mandatory stop in Margarita Island for immigration. Another sweetness. just leff our bags on the plane, walk in got stamped and walk out. No waiting in line nothing so. The entire trip was about 2hrs flying time. not stress, no hassle and most of all no security check points...talk bout sweet.

Arrived in Barbados to this sight It's actually much nicer to the plain eye, plus it was a cloudy day. We passed directly over Grenada and off the coast of TnT, the sights was just beautiful and since we were flying lower than a normal jet would, it was just awesome. We touched down at BGI nice and smoothe nad was on our way, another nice experience, just walk right up, declare that we came on a private jet, clear immigration and walked out. Talk bout a nice expereince...cha...

So that's why I was MIA for the past few days. took some photos for the Bajan possee, this one in particular be pleasing to their eyes

All in all it was a first class experience and I ready to go again. But I'm quite tired, because I had too much to do in the three days that I was there and it was hotter, than hot hell.

Dat picture of the snowcone man remind me of younger days. A ice cold refreshing snow cone or sky juice was the something well appreciated during the holiday on a hot summer day.

Glad you enjoyed the ride... I have been in a small prop plane too, but only on an inland flight. A bredrin took me for a few hops. He was folling around too, stalling the plane and ting just to frighten me... We call him Crazy Eddie.

He flies for Air Jamaica now, though I am sure he never told them his nickname in the job interviews :-)

No way you won't scared at all?

I am so afraid of those tiny planes I had that exact same experience as Mad bull a friend took me up once and frightened the hell out of me but at least you got the first class treatment so good for you.
I love Barbados can't wait to visit again.

Yammfoot, MaddBull, Dr. D and the other folks..I was a bit scared at first in the plane, believe me, I said a lot of prayers, but I prevailed. If the opportunity comes again, I'll surely take it. I especially enjoyed the no-hassle immigration/long lines aspect of it.
