"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Carib Culture

>> Tuesday, February 26, 2013


           Today we had a 0600 wake-up for a trip to see and experience Carib culture in Dominica. So far, it’s been my favorite port. Dominica has a nice city, a cool fruit market and the infamous boiling lake hike. We went ashore and climbed into our vans, which took us to numerous places. The first stop was a grapefruit farm. We loaded up on some fruit for the ship, and then continued on to a local beach to stretch our legs after a long drive. Then we went up a mountain to experience some Carib culture.
            As our van blasted Bob Marley music with very high base but great sound quality, we stopped at a small basket weaving shop and I got a few gifts for my family. We continued to drive through the area and sampled homemade cassava bread. Next we went to a local home to taste homemade chocolate. Finally, we went to a local pool for swim call.
