    Demolition

    Last week they started to demolish the old warehouse buildings in the container area. It will be interesting to see what develops there.

    Also I was impressed how the shopping area and landscaping turned out along the terminal end of the new trolley line, I found myself sneaking over there for patechi's on to many occasions. Lol

    When I was there in November a friend told me that the Hard Rock scrapped the idea of building a hotel at the old bushiri site. He didn't know why and I'm not certain if that is even true but as a local he seems to know quite a bit about what is going on around the island....Was really excited knowing they were going to try to improve that area as well as build a hotel NOT up with all the other high rises packed so close together.....

    6-8 ships in the port , will cause a nightmare in downtown area, and at most of the resorts as well...during our stay on Christmas week and a New year, there are were so many tourists from those ships, that in order to walk to the water, you literally had to step over the other people....and we are talking the beach area, that belongs to our resort...
