    Thank you folks for the positive comments. This picture was taken in the heights of Riviere Cyrique a place called Bois Deniere last year October when I came home on vacation and my birthday. No matter where I go my environment may change but the person remains true to one’s belief. I still do farming in my spare time and handling a cutlass is like using a pen. Today I like almost everyday I drank a coconut and yes my cutlass came in handy to cut the jelly open. Stay blessed Dominicans and one lil advice farming doesn’t mean you are uneducated or poor is just a means of “sustainable living” growing what you eat, eating what you grow and avoiding all the chemical injected foods that’s on the market at present. :wink: :-D

    This woman is a healthy woman. You could see all the muscles in her arm etc. She looks like a contented woman. Enjoying all what nature have to offer including fresh air. We live in the US with everything artificial. Which is the cause of this administration.

    Since this administration came in, more of us were forced to get out, because produce outlets for shipping has failed. I am educated, but could not pay my bills with my salary, so I have to move. I am praying for the day when I could come back. The US is not the US twenty years ago. Just working hard in the concrete jungle, and not enjoying nothing nature have to offer.

    I remember the days I as a woman was doing that. I am missing this and the sweet water, plus the jelly inside. Please we need changes in Dominica so I could come back and work on my land and enjoy all the natural things wasting on my farm, because there are not enough markets to ship things out of the country.

    I hope we can get outside markets like the Mike-I-Like administration. Living in the USA I yearn to come back to my farm, because the things here do not taste the same, pay more for so-called ORGANIC, while produce on my farm is wasting, and grass is all over them. I hope we really will get the days when hucksters were fighting to get produce to take to other countries, and we were living sweet. Dominica has no outlet for our produce and we just have fast food junk.
