St Johns

We took the bus into St Johns and were lucky to find only one mini cruise ship in residence. After running the errands that had bought us in we wandered around the streets looking at the vibrant life that is so typical of the Caribbean.

The older wooden houses fascinated Gisela and it was hard to believe that some were still in use despite the subsidence and delapidation.

We looked forward to visiting the big stone built church on the top of the hill in St Johns but we found that it was closed due to subsidence and delapidation.

Perhaps wood and tin is better for the Caribbean than stone.

  1. Wood and Tin weigh less, and if you cannot be bothered building foundations, well no one will see them, then less chance of subsidence.
    I see the caribean is the same all over.
    Have a great time and keep posting Victor
