St. Kitts

We visited the remains of an old sugar factory/rum distillery (it became VERY apparent over the course of the excursions we took in every port that rum is KING throughout the Caribbean islands).

There were two locals hanging out while we were looking around and they had these little monkeys with diapers on.  These two were supposedly brothers about 7 months apart.  Later I asked our guide how these guys got the monkeys and he said they trapped them.  He also said once trapped, they cannot be released back into the wild (but I'm willing to bet they are as they're probably not nearly as cute when they're bigger).  And OH YEAH, my monkey pictures cost me $10!!  Not allowing THAT to happen again!

It was very pretty but all just ruins.  No current operational stuff.  I will say after a couple more excursions, I was getting aggravated at how much time was spent on the bus and how little time was out seeing and doing.

I love that shot of you with the monkeys, but I'm sorry it cost you $10. And I agree, that would be frustrating - spending so much time on a bus.
