This coming day was all about nature. We started out from the harbour of St. George's, the capital and went into the mountains to see some fantastic wildlife. Grenada is a very green and beautiful island and the flowers are impressive (see photos). At a farm we learned about cacoa and how they are harvested. We drove all the way to Gouyave, the second biggest city of the island to visit a nutmeg factory. We saw how they are dried, cracked open, sorted etc. Quite interesting to see, even though non of us really liked nutmeg. Because of this we passed quickly through the store inside the factory where many tourists bought fresh nutmeg but also nutmeg oil etc. Even though it was nice, I wish happy to be out of there because the freshly cracked nuts have a very bad smell. When we went back to the capital we had enough time for a bit of shopping and walking around the small city. In the early evening we left the island, which we had enjoyed a lot.
