DOMINICA & THE CARIB INDIAN TERRITORY

THIS IS THE FOURTH TIME I HAVE VISITED DOMINICA AND YET I HAD NEVER VISITED THE CARIB TERRITORY BEFORE. I HAVE WRITTEN MANY ARTICLES ABOUT "GLI - GLI" THE CARIB GOMIER CANOE THAT IS HOUSED IN TORTOLA BUT I HAD NEVER SEEN HOW THEIR CANOES WERE ACTUALLY MADE. THE CARIBE TERRITORY IS COMPRISED OF OVER 3,700 ACRES AND IS ON SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LAND IN ALL OF THE CARIBBEAN - THE ENTIRE EASTERN BORDER KISSES THE ATLANTIC OCEAN WITH NUMEROUS BEACHES, CLIFFS, WATERFALLS AND CAVES.

SHOWN BELOW IS OUR GUIDE JOHN GABRIEL, A CARIB NATIVE WHO WAS VOTED #1 BY HIS FELLOW GUIDES. HE TOOK US ON A LOVELY TOUR WHERE WE HAPPENED TO MEET OUR OLD FRIEND, JACOB FREDERICK, WHO IS PICTURED WITH THE BASKET WEAVER BELOW. JACOB'S BROTHER FAUSTULUS WAS THE DESIGNER OF THE CARIB VILLAGE SHOWN BELOW. IT WAS FUNDED BY THE EUROPEAN UNION AND IS USED AS A MODEL THROUGHOUT THE CARIBBEAN AS TO AN EXCELLENT WAY TO PRESERVE HISTORY.
