Grenada

Warm welcomes, simple charms in Grenada

It had been a few years since I was last in Grenada, but I recognized the lady selling nutmeg in Market Square from my last visit. There were a lot of ladies plying their wares there, but she was a standout in a brilliant tropical dress and head wrap. As before, she did not want her photo taken, so I bought a miniature grater and some of her nutmeg jam and got a shy smile of thanks in return. Grenada is full of polite, welcoming folks, always ready with a “good morning” or “good day.”
