Getting Paid versus paying...
Some of the perks of being in St. Lucia for the Peace Corps are fairly obvious. During one of our lunch breaks in training, some of us walked to the nearby local beach. While most of the people on the beach were locals, there were some tourists staying in the rendezvouz... a hotel designated for only those romantic couples that like to stroll the beach on a sunny day holding hands and frankly making everyone else on the beach sick to their stomachs.... this beach brought us to the thought that - wow- we are getting paid (not much, but still) to be here while there are many people that are actually paying to be here! Quite the concept.
The pic is a boat from the US Navy that was docked at St. Lucia for a little.
