in the land of sea and sun

Potters Village, Antigua and Barbuda

Down in the tiny island of Antigua (roughly 100 Miles²), my family and I are spending our Christmas holiday together in one of the island's harbors. Soaking up the sun, enjoying the beautiful mountain and ocean views, and having a few adventures along the way.

So far, we encountered about 3/4 of the population of Antigua in the capitol city doing Christmas shopping. This, of course, led to serious traffic jams and it took us 1.5 hours to travel roughly 9 Miles. Poor planning on our part.

Also, during the few forays into the sea both my mother and I have managed to be stung by jellyfish. Ouch. I was stung twice this morning; once so badly that once out of the water you could see the tentacle marks around my shin/ankle as a burning white mark. Now it's calmed down, no longer leaving me writhing in pain, only a raised red irritation. Quite unusual, though. Hopefully I will not encounter any more jellyfish on this trip (or ever...or at least not when they can sting me).

Ha.. at least the "kiss" of jellyfish will become your unforgettable moment in your trip to the island of Antigua
