Hi again medico5,

I could give you an address where you could write and they would pass to Joseph or Mary but I wouldn't bother if I were you. When you arrive just walk onto the beach and they will find you.

Joseph is a great bloke but if you want a good laugh go on the trips that Blackie arranges

E-mail me and I will send you photos etc.

Hi Medico5

If its of any help i do have Mary and Josephs Telephone numbers you could either ring them or text them.

If you book any trip with them you will feel very safe and part of their family, you will really be looked after very well.

Let me know if you would like these numbers.

with regards to the wheather, it is monsoon season so it will rain but only for 10 minutes and then dry again. we went at the end of the monsoon and it was nice and refreshing when it was raining and then the sun starting beating down.

We took £100 in rupee's and the rest in sterling travellers cheques exchange rate is about 220 rupees to the pound the american dollars were getting less.

bungalows are clean and basis , but if you can upgrade as the deluxe rooms are great fully a/c Tv & DVD bath & shower they are really spacious.

take a insect repellent with a high deet content (we had 50%) and we still got bitten.

the local children will ask for bonbons (sweets)

Change some rupee's into small notes i.e 100 rupee's as you will need these for tipping on trips etc.

it is a beautiful country and poor in places so please be careful.
