We arrived in Dominica yesterday(28th march). The currency is eastern Caribbean dollars. They speak English.We haven’t done loads but we did an amazing river tour up the Indian river. It is fantastically beautiful. In the river you have to row as you are not allowed to use outboards to protect the marine life. Our tour guide,Antony, explained everything is such detail. If you have watched the second pirates of the Caribbean film you might remember Callipso’s hut on the river bank. This hut was actually built on the Indian river! Sadly, last year there was a terrible hurricane called hurricane Maria. It destroyed the hut but you could still see were the hut had been. We saw crabs and mullets. We walked to a fruit farm on the river tour and we saw: pineapples,oranges,sugar-cane,avacadoes,grapefruit and passion fruit. Do you know pineapples actually grow out of a tree near the ground so they don’t hang from trees like most people think. They attach to their tree by their base not their leaves. After that we went to a little bar and me and Daisy had a delicious drink which tasted like cranberries and ginger. I will post pics of the fruits.
That is a pineapple growing. Very strange and very beautiful.
This is the Indian River.
