yesterday, my cute new friend becky took janae and i and our kids on a driving tour of the island. little did she know that she was saving our lives. it felt spectacular to get out of the house and actually get a feel for where we live. so go ahead and take the tour with me and my pictures out the window. just remember to stay on the left!
the general election will be held next week. will the incumbent Labour hold on to their 14 years of power with their awesome billboards? or are people thinking, "hey! it's really expensive to live here and i can't even find a decent box of red vines! and why am i eating apples from washington? i'm voting for PAM!" depends on who you ask. but until then, we get to hear yelling and loud music from downtown basseterre every night.
this is st. eustatius where our friends the packards live! only 6 miles away! so close and yet so far. how do we get there? we don't know.
mt. laimuiga. this is the volcano. i want to hike it. i love it. i just finished reading tess of the d'urbervilles and i'm feeling all pastoral and moody. or is that always? anyway, this lush, foggy mountain is very beautiful to me.
i have a hundred more photos but i'll stop there. if you come to visit and bring me a tub of red vines, i might just take you on your own personal tour. think about it.
