Just a lil bit more

I am no 'development' groupie. But so many of the back to earthers miss the point. A decent road network isnt much. A decent housing infrastructure islandwide isnt much either. We have the odd combination of shitty infrastructure and government officials driving round in first world limos and cars, for achieving nowt.

I look at Dominica not through the eyes of someone tired of 'big' countries. I look at it as a country trying to retain its citizens. And the state of the country doesnt inspire patriotism. It promotes flight.

Dont Cry for me

Just returned from the IN Network convention in Argentina. Its both energising and at the same time a reality check. There is so much work to be done for agencies like ours. We are slaves to our markets and the commercial activity in the Caribbean needs to grow so that we too can grow.

Everything is about relationships and I believe we are on the right track, even from our little unimportant cubbyhole in Dominica.

Big things will happen very soon.
