Pink Gin Beach
was about time... A good holiday from our daily life in Trinidad.
A romantic Valentine's weekend on a new Caribbean island.
a first look, Grenada is like any other Caribean island: crystal
clear aqua water, white sandy beaches, laidback people, and everything
you might dream of, if you have some American dollars to spend...
Port of Spain, it was only a 35-minute flight to St-George, capital
of Grenada. St-George is the nicest city in the Caribbean I have
seen so far. Charming, friendly, historical with some 200 years
old churches and amazing viewpoints from old French and English
is a major tourist destination for cruises. Just over the weekend,
6 huge cruise boats came to St-George, which totals at least 6000
stayed at Grand Anse, the major resort area with a beautiful beach.
arrived at 6:55am on Saturday morning in Grenada. We took a nap
and by 9am, we woke up and went for a walk and a coffee. We then
went to St-George to look at the busy market. Un Sunday, everything
was closed, so we walked to Morne Rouge, the bay next to Grand
Anse (picture on the right). A pituresque quiet bay.

Monday morning, we went to Annandale's fall, an unimpressive waterfall
in Constantine (middle of the island). The trip was nice and we ended
in a local shop-bar where a guy makes his own spiced rhum. Locals forced
me to taste this 75% alcohol rhum... outch! I could feel all my oesophagus
and stomach melting inside me. I tried not to cry, but I did... Tears
came to my eyes. It was too strong and too spicy. With a single -big-
shot, I felt dizzy, almost drunk (more than when I drink 4 beers). Another
experience I will not forget! (It reminded me the rubbing alcohol I
drank in Laos or the pure Palm alcohol from Myanmar).
We finally came back and I slept on the beach part of the afternoon.
What a wonderful day we had!.
