    So I have been offered a great job in the Grand Caymens. Anyone else ever done this? I know they don't have a gay community and in fact almost frown upon gays..
    Thoughts?? icon_wink.gif

    I have been there. In fact, had a friend who lived on both Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac for a period of years.

    Have you been there at all?

    There is mostly only one sandy beach. The rest of it is iron shore (I think that's what they call it, dead coral stone).

    There is no "native" population… they were uninhabited originally. Thats because they're a very hostile environment for humans with no "soil" to grow much of anything, really. Some of the plants are so toxic, you break out in itchy hives (like poison oak) if they drip on you during a rain.

    I doubt there is any 'gay' scene there at all. Certainly not an open one. Kind of third-worldish once you get inland even a little bit. And, of course, it is mostly tourist money and banking -- meaning off shore accounts for criminal syndicates -- that keeps the economy going.

    Nice place to visit if you have the $$ but I wouldn't want to live there very long. Oh, and hurricanes can be devastating. They were hit pretty hard a few years ago.

    Keep in mind this is a very small island with a population somewhere around 54,000 people. The sandy shore of 7MI beach is where all the hotels and resorts are. Most of the rest of the shoreline is not sandy *and* is private property. There are a few exceptions. So it is a very insular environment. You'll probably want to take vacations OFF the island fairly frequently.

    The other two islands, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are even smaller with a total population of about 2,000 between them. People joke that the entire population of the Caymans are in-bred--but it isn't much of a joke, LOL. Consider they had been a small population for a very long time, especially in the beginning. They didn't get settled until the 1600s There was this new British school teacher on Cayman Berac who once asked the children in her class to outline their family trees… Bad idea LOL… as they were all related one way and another.

    One thing I loved was the accent… a very melodic English with Dutch and Jamaican mixed in. The weather was delightful, of course. Excellent diving, too, if you'r into that.

    As a kid I went to Grand Cayman every winter for like 6 years. I have such amazing memeories of that place. I think it's beautiful. Georgetown is the main "city" on grand cayman and it was nothing to write home about, but it had some stuff to do and conveniences.. I ate subway sandwiches there like everyd day and thought they were soooo good at the time icon_rolleyes.gif

    "7 mile" beach isn't actually 7 miles either, but it is beautiful and caymen has some stunning beaches and water. Snorkeling and diving is awesome.

    only gays on the island tho will prob be tourists. So a constant flow of new ass.

    if it's like a temp job for a year or two, i'd do it, otherwise it'd get old living there long term.

    I guess could always be worse, living in Iran, KSA, or a black or arab country (except maybe SA...but probably not).
    And before the retarded liberals say anything, i'm arab, I know what im talking about more than you.
