This morning Diane and I went to the Farmer's Market at 5:30 am. I am now convinced that the rumors are true - the best fruits and vegetables are gone by 7:00 am. We picked up ripe bananas, ackee, tomatoes, kale, and several others I had never seen. Needless to say we had a delicious feast for our last breakfast on the island, thanks to Diane.
On our way to the airport, we drove up to Ham's Bluff and then back via Creque Dam Road and Mahogany Road. The road is torn up where they have laid a fiber backbone, as part of the stimulus package, that apparently connects to the junction of the fiber cables from South, Central, and North Americas and Africa. The lack of rainfall during the past several months is apparent as everything appears as brown as it does in July and August.
It has been another successful expedition, but now it is time to say good bye until we return in July.
