Cruise ships don't bring in as much as they might, everything tourists buy (local crafts etc) is really cheap. Even coffee is less than £2 a cup
I suspect that we will take Australian Dollars on the day you arrive, anything to encourage you to spend!
I haven't been to the pubs yet, various bars yes, but not the pub. You have to try the local spirits, we do have lemonade if you can't drink it straight!
Overhang, yeah well. It's safe if it doesn't fall out, even then it's probably not dangerous. We haven't done Health and Safety Overload yet so we work on the basis it's safe rather than 'there's a minute risk that it come loose, and if it comes loose there's a small risk it'll fall off, and if it falls off it's technically possible (however unlikely) that it'll injure someone. So we better not do it'
That's actually one of the nicest things about being here. Everyone uses their common sense to avoid injury and damage, and it works.
I mean really, who's going to drive into it? You'd have to be pretty dumb.
When I was out in the boat once, the owner was asked a question about swimmers being washed away. He said "well nobody has yet because everyone's careful - and if someone wasn't careful, well they deserve to get washed away". I've heard that sentiment a few times, everyone looks out for everyone else, but generally if someone does get injured it's because they were being stupid and then they deserve it.
