Dominica-the "other" side....

​​​Dominica has also another side....

​Its a very poor island with unfortunately some criminal people. You have to be on your guard when you are here. If they can rob or fool you , they will for sure do. Its because 2 years ago they had the worst hurricane in 40 years. Its called Maria. Most of the island were destroyed and numerous boats where blown up on land and destroyed. Almost all bridges and roads were flushed away.

Where ever you go on the island you still see relics after the cathastrof. When we spoke to the habitants of Dominica about the storm it was amazing stories we heard. There was not one leaf left on any tree in the jungle, house roofs were flying around and so on.....

The island it self is VERY poor and they try to rebuild it as good as they can, but it takes very long time to recover all this. They need the money they can get from tourists or sailors like us to recover, unfortunalety they rob you if they can. We put as much as money we could on this island so we at least helped what we can. Its heartbreaking to see a paradise like this can be so totally destroyed in 12 tough hours....
