And it was good to be a little island. A part of the world and a world of its own, all surrounded by the bright blue sea.

By Margaret Wise Brown, from The Little Island

I feel terribly ignorant.


Off to this not-so-little island tomorrow, without having a clear idea of exactly where it is, and even worse, not realising that Haiti is part of the same island. Devastated Haiti.

"Three years on from the quake, its evident reconstruction has been fatally undermined by greedy and incompetent outsiders."  - from the Guardian.

So this is where we'll be...the Majestic Colonial Punta Cana. Yes, a part of the world and a world of its own, all surrounded by the bright blue sea.

We're very fortunate.

We'll have an unforgettable time.

One thing I shall try not to forget while we're there is...

the other side of the island.
