I was in Antigua for six weeks and never did that--I'd heard it was ugly, but your photos show some stunning architecture. I'll follow your lead and maybe stay a couple of days there.

I used to be a bit of an adventurer but nowadays the most wild thing I do is to climb up a roof of a hostel. Thanks for the nice comment. /Ake
