TGIF #18

Shopping on the Spice Island becomes tolerable with a little help from the North Pole Bar.  Here’s more.


St. George’s, Grenada’s capital city, offers just about anything you could want: good food, a scenic port and plenty of local flavor.

If you’re looking for brightly colored rasta gear, miniature steel drums, handmade jewelry or an assortment of typical souvenir items, you’ll find them from local street vendors near the cruise ship dock.

If cinnamon, nutmeg, lemongrass or other locally grown spices is what you’re after, head a block over to the Spice Market.  But if all you really want is a good drink while waiting for your shopaholic friends to get their consumer fix, be sure to take refuge in the nearby North Pole Bar for ice cold beers and Spicey Rum Punch.  You’ll probably see me there.

Have a great weekend, everybody.
