Dreaming of Antigua part 2

Yeah, welcome to St. John's...

It's a perfectly agreeable small capital city with all the usual amenities:

And all the usual tourist attractions:

there's a museum...

and a cathedral (quite nice actually):


There are statues of the national hero:

framed by cute little pineapples.

There's yummy local food:

The food was yummy, that's for sure. But the lady at Fabian's decided to try to calculate our bill incorrectly, in her favor of course. Unfortunately, she didn't count on my penchant for math and numbers.

I liked St. John's. I really did.

It reminded me of Mindelo, and as everybody who knows me knows, I love Mindelo. In a very serious way. And frankly, I wouldn't mind moving to St. John's (or Mindelo, I'm not that picky) permanently.

Even the Antiguan-and-barbudian flag is pretty:

It's a difficult choice trying to decide which flag I'd prefer as my own (hypothetically, of course): Antiguan or Cape Verdean...

to be continued... (maybe)
