Went downtown, dead except for two cops with lights on on the main drag, doing... apparently NOTHING!
So we slip by this club, because my friend knew the owner. Twelve O'Clock midnight and yet only a handful of people.
We sat down at a table and waited a half hour to get a couple of Ice Teas W/ Lemon and nobody came to take our order.
Finally my friend got the attention of the owner and asked why nobody came to the table.
He said they could not afford a waitress, and the only way to get a drink was to go to the bar.
We decided to get out of there and head down to the local beach, where normally, even in off season, the place is packed with people partying, camping, fishing etc...
Not a soul. Zero, zip, nada, zilch.
We drove on down to the tip of the island, where the mansions are.
Every last one for sale.
Not kidding. Not just a few, every ğkking one of them.
Dark, most of them.
Not a light on the road.
Only cars we saw were at the sleazy motels. Parked.
All ominous signs for a once thriving place such as this.
On the way back, we saw some homeless people, and underage drinkers. The only people left in what was once a thriving place. Normally the cops would have chased them away, but there were no other people to begin with.
Not certain what happened whilst I was away, but somebody killed it dead as door nails. Was so sad we went home.
*sigh* bored.gif
I do believe this is the worst economy I've ever lived through, and at no time did it hit me any worse than last night.

Maybe Finland isn't so bad after all? Not that you have ever mentioned once, that it was bad in any way there..

Not to you maybe chuckle.gif But I reminded him today how wonderful it is after getting my first mosquito bite and it's been raining like hell and the wind is howling. Oh and it's cold too and the economy is going all sorts of ways to hell as well.

Yes, I do so miss the mosquito bites the size of golf balls, 50 degrees (feels like 35 with the wind and rain) and worrying about frost in July...
But you made up for all that bunny.

Damned...sounds pretty much like this town.

Went out to check out a local band yesterday.
Prime time Saturday - not a cat in the streets,
maybe two or three lost-looking cars,
about 50 souls at a live music joint that used
to be ram packed all weekend long in the not
too distant past.

Everyone moving to the capital, or what..?

genuinely picturesque spot in town.
