One of the least developed of all the Caribbean Islands. In one photo, we are rowing up the river with a local guide. 
This is the only island where there are still descendents of the Carib or Kalinago people who originally inhabited the Caribbean Islands, when Columbus “discovered” them.  We took a tour and bought some baskets that the Kalinago people make, using the same techniques that their ancestors used in 1492. 
We also enjoyed flavored rum – we chose the “Obama Special.” 

Like all these islands, there is a fort – a remnant of the dispute between the French and English that persisted for many years. We visited with our new friends Lance and Susie of “Queen Emma,” from Berkeley.
