The Cayman's used to be a sleepy place. Not much happened. The odd hurricane and charity bash, some sun bathers and lots of fish. Post Lehman and all these islands are shitting themselves. Yesterday I was told all my agreements have to be amended to reflect new changes to Cayman laws and regulations. The lawyers are loving it and I am not.
But that is dull. Instead, I wish I was a fly on the SEC's walls. Their case against Goldman is so tenuous that it beggars belief. The current Fab French Fcuk emails are embarrassingly French, and Goldman are treating the spectacle as a circus act. The SEC are stupid but not that stupid so what is the real dirt? If I were a fly I would know.
But that was really dull. What is really exciting is I have only eaten at 14 of the world's top 50 restaurants as reported in the guardian.
So that means I have a lot of traveling to do this year as there are virtually no restaurants noted on the list in London. I mean St John is worth a visit but its like flesh eating in a fridge and the Fat Duck is an experiment way past its best buy date.
Flies cannot talk so there is no gossip today.
