Crazy stories… The whole place is crazy, but a few that my Mom might not call me to yell at me for saying: A friend of mine got kicked out of one of the fine late night establishments and proceeded to lead the hotel staff on a low speed chase through the hallways until he lost his pursuers. Then he got into a heated game of Kill the Carrier on the beach before he ended up meeting a group of Swedish frat stars in the lobby of our hotel that immediately took him in as one of their own. Also, I happened to get kicked out of my friends’ hotel literally every day. I seriously think that it was because I was the only red head on the island.
