Each evening, the locals came out and set up stalls in the sea front park, the food was amazing, lobster, mussels, kingfish, snapper, samosas, fish cakes and much much more, all with fantastic spices.

On the tour, the locals weaved baskets, rings, necklaces for us as we walked. I ended up with a man bag, a particularly smart ties and pair of glasses!! Giorgio Armani eat your heart out!

The streets of stonetown are very narrow, and are a complete maze, easy to get lost in.

Anglican Church

This anglican church was built on the site of a former slave market. The altar sits where the whipping post used to be. A circle on the floor in front of the altar locates the exact spot.
