The Road to Capuchin

This is a view of the road, past the bay and towards the last bend, heading up to the village of Capuchin, which was where I was posted as a Peace Corps. This is a road well traveled for me as I walked it on an almost daily basis during my service but it is a good example of the lush green jungle that covers most of Dominica.

Cocoa trees, coconut trees, coffee trees, kenip trees, bananas plants, ground provisions, citrus fruits trees… the children would climb the kako trees (cacoa) and pluck the pods to suck the seeds from them. It’s actually quite nice fresh and it doesn’t really taste of chocolate at all.
