Grenada's physical beauty is complemented by its rich history and vibrant, living cultural heritage. Local festivals, fairs, and markets remain an integral part of life on Grenada. Its centuries old spice plantations and rum distilleries still use traditional methods, emphasizing quality rather than quantity. Although the tourist industry has become more substantial in recent years, the island's easy rhythms and the friendly openness of its residents evoke an atmosphere that has long since vanished elsewhere.As you all can imagine, I've been spending copious amounts of time on the web just browsing all the sites that have anything to do with life on Grenada. I've joined several email groups of former and new PC volunteers which lets me ask and have lots of questions answered. Have interviewed 3 moving companies regarding packing up all my stuff and storing it while I'm away, so getting there, slowly by surely.
Today was my last day at Beau Rivage Golf & Resort. Thursday I head off on a 5-week, 3000+ mile road trip back to the Midwest to visit friends and family, attend a 50th wedding anniversary on Lake Michigan, play golf in the UP, spend time in Door County, take classes at the big sewing expo in Chicago and lastly, attend my 44th high school reunion in beautiful Danville, IL. It will be a great trip and I'm going to try and put everything Peace Corps out of my mind until I return on July 22nd. Then it will be a race to get everything taken care of before I leave.
Thanks to all for stopping by my blog and staying 'hey'. Keep those good wishes coming in!
