You could but then your little leggies would be too tired for dancing. Take a cab - it ain't such a nice walk anyway.

We took a taxi to get there, and we walked back...best of both worlds...

Concert was fab...no problems getting there, getting in or getting a drink either...
JT did all his well known songs...he seems a nice guy...reminded me a bit of David Beckham...boyish type. I had seen some pictures of him, but never any concerts or video clips or anything so not sure what he looked like really, can't see the fuss to be honest...but his performance was very good! I was impressed.

Hi MH, glad to hear you had a good time, l could hear them testing the equipment from my office. there were 3 of my staff at the beach near the pontoon area on the far right of the beach where we do water sports for the hotel guests. You might have seen our jet skis and boats there. My office is in the marina on the opposite side to the fish market. Next time hey!!!
