s/v Amaris arrange through our boat guy Alexis for an all day island tour and invited us to tag along.
Jeffery was our guide. He showed us the house where the oldest living person in the world used to reside. She lived to be 128. Currently Dominica has over 20 centenarian, the most per capita of any country in the world. They must be doing something right.

|The treat? Cinnamon bark straight off the tree - smelled so good|
Then he drove us up, up, up into the mountains. He stopped a few times so we could take in the stunning views and to show us various plants and such.

Next we toured through the Kalinago (Carib) Indian area, stopping to try Cassava root bread. Kalinago is the name they prefer because it is their real name! Carib was the name that Columbus gave the people that were here FIRST!
