  1. Heed this warning. Castries has burned down twice. Everywhere you turn another plywood hut going up in this plywood city. Wood is a good fuel source for fire.... Just saying something about history repeating itself.


  2. Ohhh ... so that was what all the brouhaha was about (sirens blaring, traffic backup). Jus' sayin' ---
