The roads continue to be unstable as proved by the Canefield cliff that came down dramatically, blocking the main road and trapping our driver, Curt who was injured in a vehicular accident on one side. He eventually got to casualty by means of a boat and a scooter, only to find the orthopedist had packed up and gone home, leaving him to choose to be admitted into the corridor to have his fractured hip seen in the morning or, to go home and attempt to go to private physician the next day.
Usually this October / November period is enjoyed by all as Independence time. We celebrate Dominica’s achievement and long service of public spirited individuals while also enjoying the World Creole Music Festival, dance, music and food which is a curious mix of creole and African cultures. In spite of the blocked roads, lack of utilities and food shortages, there was a great turnout at the stadium and people of all ages enjoyed the Prime Minister joining his village dance troop in his suit and tie to celebrate.
