Culture Shock in West Indies

Nice article about expats acculturating (or not! - E@L has been stuck in Irritable Expat Mode, has been for nigh on nine years) from a blogger in Dominica...

Now, whereTF is Dominica? Google Earth, come to mama...

Dominica is currently located due North of Martinique in the Southern Caribbean, that is until one of our nine volcanoes blows.

BTW, I linked to you at It is nice to know I am not the only one stuck in I.E.M.

Does one ever truly acculturate?

i doubt it and, of course, the locals never really let you....but maybe that's only in the south, sugar...

Hmmm, Dominican Republic. Great cigars, second only to the motherland itself, Koo-ba!

Dan mate, WRONG! Dominican Republic is the right half of Haiti. Dominica is another country (and besides the wench is dead), it is an smaller island, down below Antigua somewhere etc...

You'd never catch me falling for that trap... Umm...
