Hope this finds you well. It is really hard to believe I have been here at Reethi Rah for 3 weeks already. I have had a fantastic time here and have enjoyed making the adjustments from city life to island lifestyle.
If you are reading this as a result of meeting me at One&Only Reethi Rah then I am so glad you have taken the time to check out my site. If you haven’t yet managed to visit me here, why not? Ha ha, just jokes but the beauty here is immense and everyone should try to experience the Maldives this way, or some way at least.
I have been playing some new songs out here, a couple are a work in process, ie I am still writing them! As for covers, I have picked up “Fairground” by Simply Red and the much loved “Maria Maria” by Santana, both of which have an inspiration to them that I feel communicates with the lovely nature of the island.
In the meantime, I have recorded a version on my flip camera of me playing a cover of “Videogames.” It is at restaurant “Tapasake” which has amazing Japanese cuisine and I gratefully play here for Sunday Brunch.
Aside from the limited sound quality available on these wicked little cameras, you can at least get a glimpse of what I have I have been up to here and enjoy a view of the restaurant’s setting.
You also get a look at my Takamine that I mentioned in a previous blog!?!
Hope you like the video and thanks for dropping in to the site.
Ian the MaldivIAN.
