There we were greeted by some beautiful dancers in traditional dress and by a small steel band. The island has several hotels and a section which is taboo for non guests to walk to so we were pretty much stuck in a small section of a small island. Walking to the beach area are dozens of kiosks selling souvenirs and rum and mamajuana which is a concoction of herbs, leaves, roots, bark and spices. It is sold in a bottle ranging from 15 to $25. What you then do is add rum and a little honey to the bottle and let it rest for 3 days. After that you have a drink and it is supposed to act as an aphrodisiac or the Dominican version of viagra. Anyway, we passed on that.
We wandered the beach, George dipped his toes in the Caribbean and we took several photos.
