Risk assessment. I would throw my Harley through roundabouts in the UK, but unless you have sticky tyres and cannon balls for nuts I aint doing that In Greens, ergo riding ceased to be fun, when the right offer came along I jumped at it.

Maybe the death rate, or kidnap hasn't come up on your Trinidad Radar? Dude, backaday I have wandered around places in the very early hours of the morning that locals would think thrice about. To the point I couldnt get into my digs (long story) so I went to Bourge Malatresse to rest my head at around 2 in the morning.. Throwing small stones to wake the house. Much s creaming Oooooh Gawd Expats outside quick open the door. "You could have been killed".

I know other Expats who lived in Trinidad for 18 years who won't go back.

JA kills it's own, I aint even one their own.

You might want to find a better quote, RLS died at 49  beleaguered by ill health. He HAD to cram as much in as possible.

Au Contraire mon ami, his short life makes his quote more poignant and profound.

>>his quote more poignant and profound.<< Because he had a short life and knew he was not well, so had to make the most of it.  He would not have made that quote if he was hale and hearty.

Vanni is that really you? Great seeing you.  Finally Expat got some company.  Vanni doh go nah, please stay with us.

Hey Slice smile

Yes it's really me, as usual ...

I'm not gone, just staying a bit aside watching the storm and doing my best to keep my sanity amongst a world which does not know its tail from its head any more.

People and events are increasingly requesting from us to build up a strong inner guidance and the discernment that comes together with it. And some say that it's just the beginning.

Anyway, happy start into the New Year to each of you smile
