  1. I am from the Uk. I love the island and its people. We visit, like hundreds of thousands of others, from Europe and North America because St Lucia is a beautiful place. The past had its dark days, no doubt, but we are in the present and, even more, we have to look to the future. I say to some of the more vitriolic and biased commentators here - get over your bitterness. Be happy.

    • I guest when an esteemed guest visit your home you do not clean your yard, make sure the chickens stay in their coop, or do not tie the dog mange a long way from the house. You do not bring out the mothballed linen and your best china, and grace your guest with your best manners so that your guest feels your hospitality and generosity.
