We're on the halfway hump for our trip. The weather is unbeatable. Of all the things that this island paradise has to offer, I'd rank this weather right at the top. It's amazing how the proper climate can suck the stress right out of you. Typically, it takes a couple of days to wind down from the real world while on vacation..here it took about two hours.
We took some advice from our Insider friends, iahflyr and jakeal, to sample the local cuisine. Coconut Joe's had excellent Jerk wings. They were sweeter than the normal jerk seasoned items I've had in the past, but very good. I had a salad to include grilled chicken. Unfortunately, the chicken was under cooked. The salad had potential, but under cooked chicken is a nono. Mrs. Pained had the Fish tacos...ooooh, they were excellent!! We also had breakfast at Cimboco. Nice, light atmosphere. The Eggs Benedict was very good. They have an extensive offering of hot teas. I liked that. Mrs. Pained enjoyed the coffee.
We've toured the center of George Town by foot. Easy walking, lots of shops and historic buildings. Any time you go out strolling, you will see the local rooster (and family). These guys are colorful and full of vigor. Another common native is the iguana. These fellas have the local rep of our squirrels. Many businesses put up a metallic tree wrap to keep these guys from climbing.
