Today I saw a gecko (not Geico!) and lots of iguanas out sunning themselves on rocks near the ship. The iguanas were all different colors and patterns. They let people come right up to them and take their pictures too!
I went walking with my friend Trish to the local market and had to be extra careful. In US Virgin Islands the cars drive on the left side of the road. This is weird because in the rest of the USA we drive on the right. Some locals say that they drive on the left there because they are following the direction the horses and mules used to follow around the island. Couldn't you go in the same direction from the other side of the street though?
We had only a short trip to town today
Tomorrow I'll show you my friends that I talked about yesterday.
It's past my bed time, good night!
