Any OBs in the West Indies?

Post by Ruthie-Baby(old a/c) » Fri Sep 29, 2006 9:06 pm

I'm thinking of going out to see some of the cricket world cup in March/April 07, think I've got somewhere to stay in Jamaica, but am looking for a floor to sleep on for a few days somewhere else where the cricket is on.

I don't do hotels, couldn't afford it anyway.

Can anyone help? Or offer advice?

Have you got your flight tickets yet?

It's getting very full!

I've given up on the holiday...

the guy who runs the choir i sing with chucked out the guy who's son is at boarding school in Jamaica and that's where i was going to stay

and now the guy hates us all even though we didn't do anything and so i can't stay there

and Mr P says flights are filling up and i hadn't found anywhere else to stay

and even though my friend said there were loads of local tickets available when you get there for the cricket another friend whose sister's on the organising body said no there aren't

and my boss was trying to get me to take the holiday a week earlier than i wanted

so it was all just too much hassle.
