Photographer's Note

On a van tour, we had a very erudite and politically experienced guide who had been educated in East Germany. Surprisingly, he was very much in favor of Reagan's invasion. He said the Grenadian Prime Minister Maurice Bishop, who was executed in the coup, was the best thing that ever happened to Grenada. Apparently there were enough people in Grenada who were in favor of the US intervention that the day of the US invasion is a national holiday called Thanksgiving day. The invasion was criticized by the United Kingdom, Canada and the United Nations General Assembly, which condemned it as "a flagrant violation of international law".

Aside from the sights and the guide, the other entertainment on the the drive was the small girl I posted on Good Mood Day.

Annandale Falls are near the village of Constantine, about four miles northeast of St. George's. The grounds of the falls are a well-groomed park-like setting with lots of tropical flowers. You can swim in the pool at the base of the falls. When we arrived, locals were there hoping to earn tips by diving from the surrounding rocks into the pool. Having cared for many people with broken necks, both in ER and as they were coming to terms with their loss; I couldn't be a party to this so I walked downstream until the exhibition was over.
