GRENADA - A FEAST FOR ALL SENSES, Grenada, Caribbean By Anne Gordon
Be it the fragrance of spices, the red splash of flamboyant trees, bougainvillea and orchids in full bloom, the smooth rich taste of dark chocolate (an island speciality), or the swish of the wind in palm trees, Grenada is a place that exudes tranquility, mystery and romance.
CERVAZA FOR THE SOUL - EMBRACING THE LOVE Chivirico, Cuba
I saw that the heart-warming love of the Cubans had spread a little when we finally bundled into our bus and the resort owner and guests treated us to a rendition of ‘Na-Na-Na-Na Hey-Hey Good-bye’, followed shortly after by chants of “More rum for us!, More rum for us!”
Valentine's Day dawned with a hot and hazy Cuban sky. On our second day atop a hill overlooking the little village of Chivirico, we already knew that Cubans know how to Fiesta. Our late night arrival at the small resort of Los Galeanos had been greeted by lively music wafting up the hill, and our waitress assured us that this was a nightly event.
