I am now road legal

A peculiarity that I have discovered, since I arrived, is that if you are going to be driving in the BVI for more than a month you need a temporary driving licence. Well, that's been sorted. Popped into a car rental place, handed over my $10 and I now have a piece of paper which allows me to drive legally in the BVI for the length of my stay.

Interestingly, when I was being told how to get to the car rental place that issues them (I was told to avoid actually using the Traffic Department) the instructions went… "you know where the whore house is? Carry on until you reach the Courts and then take a right…" The assumption was that having just arrived in the BVI I would automatically know where the whore house was. What a sheltered life I lead.

Footnote… the whore house is (allegedly).. past the big roundabout, turn right at B Mobile shop, just before you get to the fire station… in case you were interested - You need to know where the big roundabout is :)

Yeah the "happy tappy", or whatever is called appears to be in the valley below of where I live. No wonder so many people come to visit the place. And I thought it was a popular family :)
