Deliveries

Off to Mexico on Sunday to take a Leopard cat down to Roatan. Just downloaded the Mexican and Honduran National Anthems together with the Cuban and Jamaican, in case of diversions!

I find a bit of national music playing over the speakers quite helpful if/when boarded by officials and now have the anthems of just about every Littoral State on the planet. Some of them are quite pretty tunes too!

Re: Deliveries

That's pretty nifty! Is there a web site or blog that has a collection of national tunes? Or might you make one?

Fortunately, you're not very bloody likely to sail to Kazakstan... I hear some people have trouble getting that anthem correct (grin).

Re: Deliveries

Pat - I'm listening to it as I type! I found a site called songr (presumably Songr - Finding Music You Like) In the Search by Lyrics you have to type at least 3 words. I typed Kazakstan National Anthem and got lots of hits including the Borat film spoof (quite amusing). Other wise, the "Official" anthem is being played by the US Navy Band...quite a stirring tune!

Atholl: Dunno about the Hustler! And Pat made a valid comment! Cigarettes, as you say, are certainly Universal currency!

Cap'n Jeff: Cheers, shipmate!

Tony
