George Town, Grand Cayman

George Town harbor is a beehive of activity on most days, it seems.  Small ferries bring cruise ship passengers to the docks (far right), scuba groups head out to explore wrecks (center), shops and bars fill with tourists (far left) while construction cranes keep adding to the "skyline."  This vantage point was from a lunch table at Rackham's restaurant, with a fresh grouper sandwich and local White Tip beer to complete the immersion experience.

This is great Jim!~ You got a lot going on there! You've really captured the busyness and life of the place! But then...you always do!
I like the couple running out the pier..."Hurry honey! We're late for our scuba lesson!"

I bought a membership of Country Vacations at Andheri Country Club. I was charged an amount of Rs.72000/- for 10 years I was promised to give free accommodations in any of the Country clubs across India and abroad in Country clubs own property.
If at all a certain place is not on the list Country club has a tie up with DAE (Dial an Exchange) & RCI (Resort Condominiums International).
So if one requires a booking in a particular place /state/Country which is listed on these tie up companies then the CLUB shall bear the accommodation charges and the member will have to pay a utility charges ranging not more than between Rs.3000-Rs.15000, depending upon the season and type of rooms. I wanted to book a vacation since November and the club is offering me packages including accommodations and sightseeing for which all the expenses shall be beared by me and the club shall not pay anything.
I told them I accept the fact that the place chosen is not on their club property but is on one of the DAE or RCI properties, so the Club should bear the accommodation charges whereas I pay the utility charges.
But they now refuse to do the same and are showing me packages worth Rs.7000/- per night. If I had to spent Rs.35000/- on my vacation why would I spend Rs.72000 for the country vacations membership??? I have discussed my issue at Consumer Court site also and requested to take some action against them but everything is worthless.
