  1. Hi,

    I was in Dominica some years ago. I met with Earl Etienne, Carla and more wonderfull artists from Dominica. I am very sad and sorry to have lost contact with them. Please kindly forward my message and contact to Earl and Carla.I am still based in London, and I would love to reconnect with them. My facebook is Angelique Zucconi. I still have and cherish Earl’s painting! I would really appreciate if you could.
    Thank you so much
    Angelique

  2. Hi there fantastic blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a lot of work?
    I’ve absolutely no knowledge of computer programming but I was hoping to
    start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog
    owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I simply wanted to
    ask. Thanks a lot!
