124--The Caribbean: Living Like Locals
@ CherieSpotting     Mar 12 2003 - 16:36 PST
cherie writes: In this section we live like the locals. Tom, Mike, Greg and I were invited to see their homes and workplaces. We sat in their motorcycle side-cars and on their bicycles, relaxed in their rocking chairs and doorways, leaned on their bars and statues, visited their “movie theaters” and ice-cream shops, watched the masters play chess and then played our own game on giant board, and finally stood in lines for EVERYTHING. We initiated conversations with the everyday folk and learned what it is really like to live under a dictatorship.
