    There is one ferry that leaves Charlestown, and that goes to St. Kitts. There's no St. Maarten from what I know. Tickets are roughly 20 EC one way. Schedules are at the dockside, and are online somewhere (can be found on Google).

    From what I know, there aren't too many busy beaches. The "busiest" beach I'd been to had maybe 7-10 people there. Oualie Beach is nice for swimming, since there aren't too many big waves. There's Herbert Beach near Rawlins, and there are the beaches in the Four Seasons - Sunshine's area. From my experience, go during the early morning. In the afternoons, that's when the bugs start coming, and by bugs, I don't mean a few of them, I mean that if you run down the beach, you will need to keep your mouth closed, and face down. One time, there was so many of them, the dead ones floated on the surface of the ocean like it was a fluid mosaic model of a cell membrane...

    For restaurants, there are a few on Nevis. Pemo's has nice burgers (beef, chicken, veggie, fish, and veggie platters). It's midway between Rawlins and school, before the Tom Jones apartments. Sophie's is just up the road from Rawlins Dorm. The two mentioned thus far are on the cheaper side 12EC-20ECish. The Chinese restaurants are rather cheap, and there are four on the island, I believe. Young's is just north of town on the Main Road, Tea House is in one of the squares (across from the "Arcade" (it's not really an arcade, just a place name). There's Gold Coast, which is on Jew Street, up Government Road I believe. There's one I've never been to that's past Ram's, called "New Generation." Seafood Madness is north of town; there's a white picket fence in front if I remember correctly. Friends have told me of little places to eat near the dock, though to me, they were somewhat pricey.

    It's also not a bad idea to start looking over some of the material you're going to be covering. (If you're going to be a Med 1, look at the upper limb, or get yourself oriented with basic anatomical terms. If you're pre-med, I'm not really sure what should be looked at first, but I guess I'll leave that to someone else)

    I didn't really go to the bars or clubs, but I'm sure others will fill you in. Take the H-buses, and don't take the Taxis (they are very expensive compared to the H-buses). H-bus fares shouldn't be more than 3.50EC for most routes. Greet people with the time of day (Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening), and use courteous words (Sir, Madam, Miss).

    And yes, you are crazy to go so early! Cherish your time at home, your family, your friends, the highways, and probably even places like Wal-Mart! Best of luck!

    Best bet for what you request (bars and women) (assuming you are not referring to the prison) is the Marriott on St. Kitts, or the trip to St. Maarten.

    By the way are you already "Dr. Hazimeh" or are you just practicing, you have a really long way to go before you are a physician.

    If it's the ladies you're looking for - I'd check out St. Bart's. It's Ritzy like whoa! Maybe you can find a suga mama to finance your medical education (And mine too hehe)
