    Take care when photographing

    by aussiecouple Written Jun 25, 2007

    I was filming a delightfully mis-spelt sign at a petrol station while my husband was filling the car. A group of youths approached from the road and demanded money for photographing them - which I most certainly was not. Seemingly under the influence of substances they were very threatening and we had to pay and leave in a hurry. The only downside of otherwise friendly and hospitable people.

    This Hurts Like Hell!

    by cymbaline77 Written Jul 13, 2007

    And is ridiculously expensive in my opinion ($2/braid...look at them, they're tiny -- I thought they would be long braids). I told her I didn't want more than 20, and she proceeded to do 33 without telling me until they were done. Also, she seemed to get increasingly frustrated as she braided my hair, growling about how thick my hair was (though I'd warned her) and talking in broken English to her friend, right in front of me, about me, as if I couldn't understand!

    All I can say is -- and I am no wimp by any means -- I had to take these things out after 3 days due to constant headaches, inability to sleep, nausea, and just general pain. I'd gotten my entire head braided a few years ago in Jamaica (for $25 U.S.) and it didn't feel like this. This is disgusting, but almost two weeks later I have scabs on my head!

    So it may have looked kind of cool, but not worth the money or listening to the complaining angry beach lady, and especially not worth the pain!

    Ouch!

    Mosquitos and Other Biting Insects

    by cjg1 Written Oct 22, 2012

    Mosquitos, sand fleas and other biting insects can be a problem here. we saw many a person with horrible welt like bites on their bodies. My wife came prepared with some bug spray she bought from Avon which worked like a charm. We were bug bite free the entire trip.
