this town is the capital of dominica. if you are looking for corporate jewelry shops and fancy restaurants this is not your destination!! i felt that i walked onto a set of a movie...maybe pirates of the the caribbean. i intend that comment as a good thing. the buildings looked very old and original with rehabbing and repair kept to the minimal and local resources. i was enchanted after so many commericial islands. many roads were cobble stone and the locals went about their daily routines. they were very relaxed and friendly. some cute local boutiques, funky cafes and bars.....loved the rum bar in the dilapidated corner building!!! the island itself is natural and not deforested as so many islands were exploited for their lumber [example: bonaire]. i liked the overall atmoshpere and feeling of the island being,so far, untouched by corporations.
i would return here to see more of this lovely island and also scuba dive.

Spent a nice afternoon going through most of the shops looking for something to take home for myself and gifts. I found most things were made in the USA, and with a 15% VAT tax really expensive. I did find one shop that had some really nice hand-made gifts, made by the people working in the store. It was Juittle's Souviour Shop on 8th Old Street, ph: 614-5770. I bought a really nice shirt that said Dominica and a Caribbean Map beach bag for my girl friend. At $15 for the shirt and $10 for the zippered canvas bag, they were a deal. Don't forget to haggle on the price! As for the shirt, all cotton, local dyed material. Warning: Wash separately as they run like most hand-made items. If you are looking for a van/bus, you need to ask! Tell them where you are going, as the $1.75 EC/$1US vans load in different areas. If you want the best market for stuff, check out the IGA for frozen food and liquor. I had tried Green's Market before, and it was about the size of two 7-11 Markets and OK. Warning: Check the expiration dates on your purchases, way too much stuff with long expired dates at both markets.
