It started off on Friday evening, when Bobby Martin (and his lovely wife Rosie), from TrustGlobal Radio was staying at the Yantra Hotel, along with Cindy Preyzner from AngloInfo. Expats from the VT area were invited along to go and meet them. It is nice to finally be able to put an actual face to a name. Suzie from a neighbouring village wanted to go as well, but David her husband was tired after a busy week, so we said that we would pick her up. As Suzie said it did make a difference having a Friday night out in VT instead of staying at home and either reading, watching the box or going on the internet. Anyway, we arrived in VT and parked up and sauntered along to the Yantra, as we passed the window we could see that Bobby, Rosie and Cindy were already there along with Janice Myer from Dog tired boarding kennels. Normally I do feel slightly intimidated meeting people for the first time, but we were soon put at our ease. Tony Jackson was also meant to join us but when he asked at the reception desk they made out that they didn't know what he was talking about, but we did meet Rachel and Joe Pritchard. Now there is an amazing couple, they have been everywhere, home schooling their children as they went. It was an entertaining evening with Bobby telling us about his early radio days, with Radio Caroline and then Radio One where he used to help with putting the early road shows together. He was also telling me about his Naval days so we were able to swap some sea stories. At 9 o'clock the hotel bar shut, but not before a young lady had turned up at the bar wearing not a great deal. Now whether she was going to a party or if she was one of the 'traffic census ladies' we may never know. Once the bar closed it was just a matter of sauntering down the road to another bar and carrying on with our conversations. It all worked out quite well as I think that we all got a chance to talk with everyone else. After dropping Suzie off home it was definitely gone one in the morning by the time we got indoors and sorted the animals out.
