Where on Earth? Week 46 – Roseau, Dominica

Not Central America, but close. This picture was actually taken just outside of the center of Roseau, the capital of Dominica, when I was visiting the Caribbean island during Christmas 2006; a holiday season full of steel drums, reggae music and fried plantain. Much less developed for tourists, Dominica is one of the Caribbean islands that doesn’t boast flocks of foreigners lounging on sandy beaches, cocktails in hand. Instead it’s referred to as the Nature Island and high on the list of hikers, scuba divers and other outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers.
