Things I've Learned From Nevis-SOC
I'm kind of digging this vacation "Stream Of Consciousness" format. I WILL REPEAT AGAIN THAT I DISLIKE WRITING ON THIS iPAd. Who knew one could gather so many morsels of information from one 36 square mile island. Nevis is truly an amazing place!!! Here is what I learned...You can capture a baby monkey and raise it but it will require a diaper for God only knows how long. There are over 7800 wild monkeys on this island. Most native Nevians have upwards of 20 siblings so it's one big family here. Therefore, you must take care when choosing a spouse (of course, it's the daddies who have a few babies with many different women and from how it sounds according to Winston and Greg...it's all good!they take pride in straight teeth. They are very educated and hard working. There aren't any beach vendors so you are never bothered. Many buildings and plantains date back to the early 1600s. You can bike up to a spot approximately 600 meters and see both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. You can take a sip of the local moonshine (basically alcohol and peanuts fermenting together and survive to tell someone about it. Caribe is the local beer. AND the most I treating piece of information is that the goats and sheep look identical and to tell them apart you look at their....TAILS. Goats' tails point up and sheeps' point down. Saw a whole lot of both. I will be sharing some fun pictures (I have one for you, Arnebya!) when I get home because this damn iPad won't let me upload them. Maybe it's operator error but result is still the same. I'm really going to miss this place when they kick me out on Thursday. That's my five minute SOC.
