    Why negate the splendour of a new discovery or an unexplored existent one?
    Whether one is from Pichelin or NOT we are all proud of the wonderful Blessings God has bestowed on our “Nature Island”.
    Take advice from ‘On your deng deng’. He/she may not have a flattering name, but he/she has shared brilliant ideas. Okay folks, let’s use this forum to MARKET and PROMOTE ‘DA’. DA, is understood as every village, town, city, square, block, mountain, hill, valley, even the unknown ‘nooks & crannies’.

    Hey, congrats Pichelin!, Hope to see you on Discover Dominica’s magazine sometime!

    Now THIS is an initiative that the Ministry of Tourism can capitalize on. 365 rivers, develop some to create natural pools with changing areas and a place to get something to eat. These will require low maintenance if done properly and will create more tourism products and leisure destinations for locals and guests. I see there is a US AID logo on the wall of the pool. i wonder if they sponsored. Now from this picture, folks will be interested in going to Pichelin to take a dip, this can bring revenue to the community. We need to properly utilize our natural resources to promote what we say we really are. The Nature Island
