... to how the shelves were stocked. I'll give you an example (not quite accurate, but it was along these lines)....walking down the cereal isle...at the end of the isle, you can find paper products. Across from the cereal, baby food. On the end cap, alcohol....the most spectacular layout I have ever seen. On the one hand, if they're trying to keep people in the store, mission accomplished, but if they're trying to aggravate tourists...well, I suppose it's "mission accomplished" again.

Once "home," I showered to get the road dust off me, read for a bit and then headed to the restaurant recommended by Anna, Rain for Fishes, where I had excellent catch of the day....not an endangered local species, and I indulged myself in a creme brulee. First dessert since I've been on the islands.
