My Nephew and I just returned from an outstanding trip to Exuma and stayed in the Oxley's 2 bedroom accommodation. The Bay itself, right in front of the house, was hard to leave it was so amazing. We paddled around the bay in the provided kayaks, and got to watch the green sea trurtles in their own environment. Peter was wonderful at giving excursion suggestions. I grew up in Florida and love the ocean and have made it a point to visit beaches around the world. Panama City Beach Florida, the Caymen Islands, the Greek Islands, Thailand's East and West coasts.

Japanese Devil Fireworks Video
Fireworks and devils! Cool festival event in Noboribetsu in Hokkaido were Oni (Japanese devils) carry tubes that shoot fiery sparks high into the sky. The origin of the festival goes back to the misty past of a few years ago which was an effort to drum up tourism. Works for me.
Oni Hanabi goes on for about two months from June to the second week of August every Thursday and Friday starting at 8:30pm and lasting about 30 minutes.
Hi, we have just arrived from Belgium and if you want to have a look at pictures etc. go to my blog: gastrolamas.blogspot.com.es
I will post some belgium recipes also as the food was great, and the beer!
We arranged to meet a Greeter while in Bruxelles, we had a lovely time and it was less touristic than a guided tour (and free!) I have enquired and also there is a greeters organization in my city (Madrid), but remember you have to book in advance!
