we did the train in st. kitts. going over some of the bridges scared the hell out of me and like i said before i skydive but i don't trust that some of these things in foreign places have a standard of maintenance. i guess i'm just crazy. but there is a bar right in town that sells the most delicious vanilla rum for like $14 bottle.

We went to the Shiggidy Shack. Good priced drinks, about $5 each. Gregg took the kids on a jet ski!! We enjoyed our day there!!

There is a Batik studio that is interesting, and Brimstone Hill fortress is pretty interesting too. I have pictures of both in my Webshots album from our visit there in November 2007 on the QM2. There are also pictures taken from the train.

steve - i did the train trip and i saw your bridge pics. i have to tell you i am not afraid of heights (everyone in my family are iron workers and i was on top of the world trade center before the curtain walls went up and i have sky dived) but going over those bridges freaked me out. i think i am just leary of how well things are maintained in some of these countries. i couldn't even look down. and people were walking all over the train car and i was like can't you people just sit in your seat and stop rocking this thing?

Well, I love trains. Any place that we go that has some kind of historical train, we usually take the ride. Our wedding reception (21 years ago today), was held in the roundhouse of the B&O Railroad museum in Baltimore.

Our train in St. Kitts actually broke down. They had to send another engine to come get us. I wasn't that concerned about the bridges. The people that operate that train depend on it for their income, and I'm sure they are inspected regularly. If not, well, if your number's up, it's up. You can't go through life worrying about everything!

The Shiggidy Shack is located on Frigate Bay. It's one of the little wooden huts that offers food and drink!!
