I don't drive very often in Grenada.
I don't usually have the need to.
An overlap of two family vacations recently provided me ample time behind the wheel:
:: Our pastor and his wife were out of town for their summer vacation. Out of their incredible kindness they left us with their brand new vehicle to help transport our summer vacation guest around the island...
:: Avi's wheelchair-bound sister, Cherrie, visited Grenada for the fist time for twenty days in August. Since we walk nearly everywhere and take local buses when the distance is too great, we don't own an automobile. Having the pastor's SUV was an lifesaver, as we would have spent a fortune on taxis to show her around the island.
Cherrie is back home in Trinidad and the pastor is back home in Grenada, so life has resumed its normal pedestrian rhythm. It's a calmer feeling... I enjoy driving - just not the anxiety of caring for someone else's fragile property. :-)
Thanks a million, Pastor Banfield.
