One thing I have learned here is that everything works on "Eastern Caribbean Time" basically translates to no rush for anything!! No stress. The banks are only open 3x/week and from 9-1pm !!

bye for ...
... an entire week here!
Most of our time spent on the island was in our very own pool- the largest private pool on the island! It was amazing. Not only were we spoiled by our own private pool, but Ryan and Jill had hired a private chef for the week. Money! So after drinking local beers and painkillers (the official drink of St.John's), we were lucky enough to indulge in the most amazing dinners prepared by a local private chef.
