Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Day 54: Our Vice, the Chicken Truck

As much as we tried to avoid it, we couldn't...the not-so-elusive Chicken Truck was serving up its hot, delicious goodness in styrofoam and we by the end of Friday night were there to partake! 

The beginning of the night was much more sophisticated, to give ourselves some credit.

Our first stop was the The Dove.  We enjoyed some really yummy braised beef croquettes and an English cheese board.  It was a lovely night, with warm temperatures, but not too warm!  We sat outside, under this mango tree actually.  (This photo was taken during our last visit.)

We then headed over to the Road Town Pub, where Charles and Joanna were gathered with friends.  We had another great time!  I had the pleasure of meeting Mort Schrader who Michael had been with during the day.  Mort is a gem.  He is the son of the legendary garment manufacturer, Abe Schrader.  Mort is a wonderful friend of Charles and Joanna.  He was a fan of Michael's red pants.  (He has some new VV ones that are pretty bright!  Sorry, I didn't get a picture!) 

Here is a photo, however, from our last stop of the evening:

Gotta love the Chicken Truck!  (And why I feel the need to capitalize it is beyond me.  It must be an excessive capitalization phase...I've been know to have them, along with the excessive exclamation point phase.  Let's just hope they don't happen at the same time!)  What Would That Be Like?!?!?!
