I cover cricket in the UK & recognize some of the things you have gone through in the West indies. I too use a monopod & yes it does stop you from nodding off.Thanks Andy

I remember waiting hours and hours in airports but for me it was winter in various parts of eastern europe. So, when all is said and done, I won’t stop envying your yearly tropical outings, keep up the great work.

For sure – there cannot be a better way to spend the day – thanks Andy

And you are right, its a hard slog, but when you look back, its still the best place in the world to photograph and watch cricket, in all its forms. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane and look forward to more of your pictures from the region in the future.
