a holiday weekend, island style

March 21, 2008


This is what one does on Easter weekend here on the island: “camping.” What it means is that everything shuts down for the weekend [shops, grocery stores, businesses, etc.–everything except for the churches, that is. And families set up tents and live on the beach, carrying with them all they need: stereos for reggae, grills for fish frying, portable showers to use in the public toilets, even televisions.
Granted, in my case, today meant church, choir practice, then going to the beach just long enough for these friends to tease me about my low tolerance for beach bumming . . . just call me “whitey” :-)
