I want to thank you again for all of your help in January. We were turned down for our grant March, reapplied, and found out today it was approved. So now I need to see if I can plan this trip in the three weeks between now and Calabash.
My big question is how difficult it is to get taxis and/or drivers. Lodging is really tight during our visit. It looks like there are a few places we could still get, but they seem pretty far to walk to Jake's for the festival, or really they seem pretty far to walk home at night since the events end late. Is it relatively easy for us to book taxis or drivers to take us to and from the festival? If so, would we need to do this in advance, or could we manage it the day of?
Also, and this is much less important--I'm running a half marathon a few days after we get back, and I'm nervous about taking a week off from training. Are the roads safe to run on? (Mostly I'm concerned with shoulders and space to get out of the way of cars, though I do worry a bit about being a woman running alone.) Thanks again!
