The St Lucia Contest

I promised a contest so here goes, but first something akin to the “fine print”.  Prizes are only awarded to contestants residing in either New Jersey or Massachusetts, because the contest sponsor (that would be me) only makes deliveries in those two states.

Furthermore, prizes will only be awarded if I find a cash machine that  accepts either my ATM or my credit card, because, you see, I am out of money.  On a positive note,  I have learned something useful to pass along to future Global Volunteers and those staying in the general vicinity of JJ’s Paradise Hotel. There is only one bank nearby, in Marigot Bay, just a boat ride away.  That bank does not accept ATM or debit cards, only credit cards, however–and this is a BIG however– it only accepts credit cards that have the Cirrus logo on the back.  As you have guessed, MY Chase Sapphire Visa card does NOT have that little logo on it.   With those disclosures out of the way, Game On!

Question One: I am out of money because

A. I lost at the slots and roulette, big time

B. The bar at the hotel only accepts cash and a week’s supply of red wine can really add up

C.  It cost a lot to get my hair braided and beaded

D. I forgot my money pouch somewhere, I have no idea where.

Hint: there is only one correct answer

Question Two:  We are on our own on the weekend, to do as we please.  Which one of these did I do today?

A. Sat by the pool, working on my tsn

B. Went zip lining

C. Went kayaking

D. Went snorkeling

Question three:  plans have been made for tomorrow.  Which of these will I be doing:

A. Driving an all terrain vehicle through the jungle

B. Bird watching in the national forest

C. Visiting Sandals resort

D. Taking a local bus and letting the day unfold

Answers on Monday afternoon, by which time I will have made it to the city and replenished my funds.

I am intensely curious, with a spirit of adventure that is tempered by my very strong aversion to anything with potential to cause pain. I love travel, photography, reading, gardening, yoga, music and propelling myself through space (biking, dancing, walking, dancing while walking). I've never considered a lack of proficiency in any of the previous activities to be a hindrance, counting on abundant enthusiasm to make up for my shortcomings.

  1. Here are my best guesses. Mike has a huge advantage of me, as he lives with you and knows of your personal daily wine consumuption. But here I go:

    1. D. Although it may be caused by B. So maybe there is two answers for this.
    2. B
    3. D But you may end up doing all of them.
