We Made the New York Times!
Monday, 10 November 2008
Wow, it looks like all our hard work is paying off. We got an email the other day from a New York Times editor saying we where going to be in the New York Times travel section. We where listed as one of the 39 Reasons to go to the Caribbean This Year . That made our day, but we didn't know they where going to make us the "Top Pick" of all the resorts they had listed in Bonaire. That was an honor.
We're thrilled as you can imagine. We're proud of the resort, but it's good to see other people like it too.

We got bananas today for the first time
in about 3 weeks. Shopping in Bonaire isn't like shopping in the
states. There is no real agriculture here so everything comes in on
the boat. We got bananas today from a grocery called "The
Warehouse." - Now from the name you're probably picturing a
Sam's or a Costco. - Think again.
The Warehouse is not as big
typical American groceries. But it is Air Conditioned and they
usually have a good selection of fresh fruit, just maybe not exactly
what you're looking for that day.
In the States, we make a
grocery list and go to one store and buy it all. In Bonaire we shop
more like our parents (or grandparents) did, we go to the market and
see what is good and fresh that day. If there is one thing you're
really looking for you might have to make a few stops to find it.
Being from New Orleans, we miss our
local food. A friend sent us a care package the other day of local
products. It cost her $40 to ship it from the States, and I had to pay
customs $10 to pick it up from the Post Office. But dinner that
night sure was good.
Sometimes we miss not having a Walmart
on every corner, but if he did, this wouldn't be paradise.
