Carnival in Grenada

Before I start with this week’s post, I want to let you all know that we are safe and sound in Bonaire (our blog always runs a bit behind where we actually are). Bonaire is an island just above Venezuela and is part of the Dutch Caribbean. It is more than 800km away from the…

Liming in Grenada

In the Caribbean, the term “Liming” is used to mean, hanging around, chilling, shooting the breeze, kickin’ back, etc. It’s useful to have such a term as it’s widely practiced here in Grenada.
