Interesting,..totally!
Seychelles - 3 main islands and many more other smaller ones. Total population about 70,000 to 80,000. A totally beautiful place,....beautiful beaches and views at every turn. (Can't even do it justice by description!) Yet after 6 months i would have 'fired' if i hadn't been able to come home for 2 weeks!!!
thanks (once again!) for your blog,..read every post!

lol! I also wondered what the P stands for!

I find the Sopranoes terribly difficult to watch!!! The storyline hardly ever gets to me before i fall asleep. Perhaps its the KTN timing.

kipepeo: Most restaurants are ok actually

anonymous: Never been to Sychelles, but plan t go there when I win the. As for P...

Kibet: Watch Season 1 of Sopranos on DVD - it's a perfect arc. Since then (season 2,3,4 and soon 5) they have mostly being marking time and minting money.
