We're so Blessed
It was fascinating to me to drive through the different towns. This is Souffriere, a town about 15 minutes drive from where we stayed. I guess it's the sociologist in me, but I could've sat on bench all day and just watched the people. It definitely felt like we were in another country. We were both overwhelmed with how little they live upon, and how much we have in comparison. Most of the houses were just tiny little shacks. One of the girls at the resort that I got to know told me that she walks 30 minutes every day to get to the main road where the taxi picks her up to bring her to work.
