  1. Great news for the island, but I cant help but think this is all shadows and mirrors, for example I went to Marigot Beach at the weekend, the place that everyone uses to advertise the island, I will not be returning, the place is a run down mess, rubbish everywhere. Grass up to your knees and very little sand. The dock has collapsed where you get off the ferry and as soon as you do, you are jumped on by guys wanting to sell you something. We had five of them troubling us, my teenage daughter was terrified. They then will not leave you alone and when you do tell them, no thanks, they just start cursing you. Such a shame for the island. I see Marigot Beach is advertised as a good place to get married, whomever decided that must be mad! On a more positive note, I love Pigeon Island and Soufriere, kept nice and clean with no harassment.

  2. Commendable achievement. Nevertheless, our future related achievements are at risk due to the current crisis that is being experienced in the department of Nursing at SALCC. The administration in that department is not empathetic or student oriented. We are humiliated continuously by that administration. Our tear ducts are dried up no one cares. Our emotional and mental well-being is under a constant threat under the nursing department administration. Therefore, the world will know sooner rather than later that there will be no nurses in St.Lucia. Hence, no one will be available to offer the tourist a panadol.

  3. Very true. That is a cause for concern. The situation at the Department of Nursing at SALCC must not be overlooked.

  4. Achievements in life are milestones that should bring introspection. We should think what further efforts are required to stay ahead of the pack. There are always others nipping at our heels trying to get ahead. It’s a race with various legs.

    Our case seems that we are sitting on our laurels. Savoring the glory. Look at Soufriere, with its population of persistent beggars. Those kids at the dock gates harassing the guests. Those boat boys with their various scams that the yacht people always blog. Mind you, this is the place that we make our money…get paid. Look at the town.
    Remember, while we are sitting on our laurels, patting our backs, others are burning the midnight oil.

  5. The harassment on the beaches are a reality. What is the NC.A doing about it? They crowd beaches with licensed vendors mixed with unlicensed ones and it is a total mess and shame. As soon as you step on the beach from the hotel you are ambushed by under dressed and scruffy looking persons hustling to sell you tours.
    What a shame!
