I’m writing this on my laptop. I’m hot and tired and don’t really like using the keyboard on laptops, so this is going to be short.

We arrived in Barbados on Friday at about midday local time after a seven hour flight from Gatwick. It’s a family trip to celebrate two birthdays,Orin’s 50th and Xavier’s 2nd. We are staying for two weeks at a villa outside of Bridgetown. It’s hot, the villa manager who met us said that it is unusually hot and that Barbados is getting hotter; he saw it as part of global climate change.

More later.
