St John

 


So we're on to some more interesting pictures... (we were pretty bummy in STT) We spent a day in St. John with our tour guide "Homes". I'm really glad we did a tour since with narrow roads and funny driving (they drive on the left even though the driver is also on the left), I think I would have freaked out if we had to drive.

The nice thing about a local leading you around means that you learn about interesting things. For instance, Homes gave us all a leaf that was something along the lines of an "air" plant. Basically, he said that if we brought it home, it would root w/o being in dirt. And lo-and-behold.... my leaf has little roots! I have since transplanted into a pot of dirt to see how it might fare in the cold cold north. I thought that I actually might have killed it since it got smooshed on its way home but its definitely kicking!

Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend!
