To Market, To Market - 11 December 2015

The Farmers Market and Grenada Museum

Friday Dec 11th, we were tired and didn't do much. I was up until about 2 a.m. organizing the photos (there were 680 of the cemetery photos - most of them Bob's but some cell phone).

But I did want to go in to Market Square to see the spice market which is only on Friday and Saturday and that was one of the reasons which I extended the trip past Saturday instead of going home today. And I also wanted to go to the Grenada Museum. Bob did not want to go into town. So he sat and watched TV and I sat and did photos until he finally said that we could get a taxi into town (I asked the front desk and they said it would be about $20 US each way.) The cab driver they got was helpful.

We went through the tunnel again, and He parked and waited while I scootered around the market and took photos. I had been told not to take photos of the people directly without asking permission.

The museum is not quite back in operation after the hurricanes, but it was interesting none-the-less.

And then he drove us back to the hotel past the Careenage.

I had thought that our flight on Monday left at 8:15 and Bob did not trust the wake-up call from the hotel - they aren't automated and they said that before the front desk was open that the security guy would do it. But Bob forgot to pack an alarm clock so he wanted to go buy one, and also get some more KFC. But I'm tired of KFC. So we went into the Spice Island Mall and he got some KFC for himself and then got an alarm clock, and then we went to Subway and I got a roast beef sub.
