Let’s blog, shall we? In recent weeks, I’ve had numerous conversations with friends and family back home who seem to still be harboring some rather misguided interpretations of my life in Dominica (some making Dominica seem better than it is, some making it seem worse and some I’m not quite sure about). For that reason, I am making a rare blog post in order to, hopefully, clear up some of the confusion.
Misconception #2 I live on an island full of latinos/Hispanics
Misconception #3 Locals on the island are pushy and dishonest like those people in the Bahamas that try to sell tourists crappy souvenirs.
Misconception #4 I have a never ending supply of fresh fruits and vegetables at my disposal here.
Misconception #5 I just lay around on the beach all day, every day.
Misconception #6 I have air conditioning so being hot down here is no different than being hot at home.
So, I think that concludes my long winded explanation of the misconceptions I hear most often about life down here. Overall, I have to say life is good in Dominica and I’m enjoying both the good and the bad of living down here. If you actually read this entire long blog I am so proud of you. You get a gold star.
