The British told me to look out for the Chinooks!!!! ....huge helicopter transporters with two propellers and Union Jacks on the undersides. Sure enough we saw them come in and land in the direction of the sports stadium.
On day 3, Thursday, my daughter, Miriam, with her bandaged ankle and our house guest Serena, went to investigate. Serena was due to fly back to the UK on Friday and we could not get the car more than 200 yards from the house!
Our daughter is a chip off the old block and apparently approached the British military and was told to come with a case and her passport and that she and others they could be evacuated that day. What a rush!! Before we knew it they were gone and were safely in Barbados with tickets to the UK. By Saturday they were in the UK.
This was the beginning of two extraordinary weeks of being the Focal point for British Nationals in distress........
