St Thomas yesterday was truly beautiful...today we go to Dominica.
I am looking forward to this but I have a cold...and so it appears has everyone else!
Last week the boat was full but sneeze free. Now we are all suffering to some degree....
The West Indian cricketer I knew in my youth had told me more than once that the Caribbean was paradise and it is but its history is grim...the way slaves were shipped over from Africa like cattle with no regard for human life is still a disgrace.
What was worse was their treatment when they got here...
Paradise it seems is built on blood.
Taking my cold onto the streets of this paradise may I think be a step too far today ....we shall see!
