St. Kitts

July 5, 2008

And it started to rain.  Lasted for about 30
minutes then the sun came out!
The rain was so heavy that one
could not go out on the balcony.

Going into town, Basseterre
The port of Zante
Left - Part of the port.  Right - Part of the tour we took.  This is where the Caribs (Kalinagos) were said to have been
massacred.  It appears they did not want to work as slaves for the Europeans.

You pay a dollar and you can take your photo with this
man and his monkey.  Monkey is wearing a pamper!

The Europeans labeled
the Caribs (Kalinagos)
as savages who were
violent and warlike yet
they labeled the Arawaks
and Tainos as peaceful.  
It appears that the Caribs
did NOT want to be
enslaved and fought back
and therefore were disliked
by the Europeans.  
The Caribs were trying to
protect what they
considered their lands,
here and on the other

Same holds true of the
Native Americans.
Ship appears to be parked in this lot.

Was once the Treasury.

April 19, 2020 - I began cleaning out my closets a while back since I decided to rent the small room of my apartment  
to a friend.  I had to shift things around which had been stored in the closets to make space.  In so doing, I decided
to get rid of the many photo albums I had stored in the foyer closet.  Damn, I did not know I had that many photo
albums.  Before shredding the photos/postcards and souvenirs, I looked at them and decided to keep a few.
I will post what I saved and scanned on various pages.   Some photos and postcards may be posted on other
pages.  Everything posted will be as scanned without adjusting the photo for color, clarity, etc.  
What you see is what you get.  Watermark will not be added.  No kallaloo here, just simplicity.

Below are the photos/postcards/souvenirs being added.  Keep in mind, some may be duplicates.
