Although my usual M.O. is to rent a car and zip around an island in order to check it out, my friend Karen and her husband (I am working with Karen on this project) insisted that they act as tour guides to show me their gorgeous home of Antigua.
Karen was born on Antigua, and studied law in London and worked in Miami before returning home a few years ago, with Rob in tow. Rob is from Brooklyn, and the contrast of a hardened New Yorker living on Antigua is pretty funny, as is Rob.
Afterwards, we drove around the island in search of lunch, only to discover that nearly nothing was open. Apparently going out on Sunday’s isn’t really a thing in the Caribbean – and most places are closed altogether in the Caribbean, which makes it a lot like Australia 30 years ago (remember that, folks?)
