Scolamanzi
Trinidad to Turkey 2012
Grenada too interesting to do in one blog!
Henriette
12/13/2010, Grenada - St George

I have opted to do Grenada in sections on the Website (www.scolamanzi.info) rather than trying to discuss all of our amazing experiences on the blog! So please go the website and have a brows through the latest updates!
And I will certainly keep it up either on the Website or on the blog (if no broadband internet is available) !
Make sure that you read the captions! I really think Grenada is a gem of a place worth visiting every year!! ;-) :-)

Seems you are having an amazing trip, it's going to
be a sad day to leave the boat behind. Ben I am very keen to hear about your experiences on board.
Absorb all you can

Grenada - The Isle of Spices
Henriette
12/10/2010, Grenada - Caribbean

Grenada, a spectacularly beautiful island, has lush green mountains, golden beaches and Restaurants all along the water's edge where you can tie your dinghy up right in front of the restaurant! The typical Reggae music is everywhere and the streets are steep ups and downs with a buzz of cars (and heaps of them for an island!) and traders and people!
Grenada has a very rich and lively history of wars and revolutions and independence in 1974 and then a coup in 1975 by Maurice Bishop who tried to run it at a socialist state - he ended up in jail in 1983, was freed by the crowd to be executed by the army in this fort (Fort St George) we've been visiting today! 1983! It was only the other day! Whaoow!
The Grenadians are warm and friendly and extremely helpful people! We had dinner last night at BB's (there are a few weird and wonderful restaurant NAMES - Horni Baboon, Dodgy Dock, Pirates Cove, De Big Fish, Bananas, The Nutmeg...etc) where we had Crabback and Conch (shellfish) and the honour to meet the Chef Brian Benjamin! What a character! He used to have a very famous restaurant in England (Ealing) and came back here a few years ago to open this fabulous restaurant with international renown -even mentioned in Time Magazine!- "My brother - he is good Man! Nothing served here was not still swimming this morning, Man!" It was great fun!!
Tomorrow we will be going on a tour of the island to the organic chocolate factory and the Nutmeg factory and waterfalls and fish markets! Will tell you all about that - got to get ready before the colourful Martin alia The Yellow Man alias Cat-Eye is picking us up "sharp" at 8am (which in Grenada it is sort of somewhere early in the morning before lunch!)

Trinidad our first landfall in the Caribbean
Henriette
12/08/2010, Trinidad - Chaguaramas Bay

We made it!! Hallelujah! And I mean it!! The last few nights made me pray even more often than when the kids were busy with their final exams!
Trinidad is amazing - well - you will probably get sick of this cliché but that is all so new and surprisingly different to what I have expected it to be.
This third world place is absolutely striving for first world services in every aspect of the sailing business. You can get just about EVERYTHING done right here in Chaguaramas! The high quality of the brochure of the town and surroundings is an indication of the sincerity of their attempts to please visitors!
They are friendly and have quite a different accent - it takes a good ear to know where they are heading with a tail! Ha!
We will only spend one day and one morning here - we need to be out of here by 11am and I have loads of washing to do!!! So...
Johann and I will be back for sure!!! This place is where Scolamanzi will stay in shelter for the 6 months during the hurricane season! So we will be seeing Trini again!
More news later!...
