on a a boat carrying families with their pigs and chickens and livestock tied with rope the way we
would lead a dog on a leash……the island was over grown and the shanties were lovely and pink hibiscus
grew around every piece of jungle poverty making it look like paradise rather than abject poverty..
there was one little wooden building painted a turquoise blue with bright yellow shutters–there were
no windows just colorful shutters…the bottom part of this structure was a combination store and
restaurant…maybe two table with a vynal table cloth. The legs of the make shift table were constructed
of wooden crates that were initially orange crush soda crates….there were chicken and livestock running
all around and children playing nearly naked—-I thought I had walked into a Gaugain….
