"THE CARENAGE - St. George’s waterfront promenade, winding around the Inner Harbour, it’s the town’s seafront hub and ringed by wonderful buildings from the colonial era"
"CHRIST OF THE DEEP & CHURCHES - On October 22nd 1961, the Costa Line cruise ship Bianca C, under the command of Captain Francisco Crevaco, got on fire and ended at the bottom of the sea. The rescue operation took some two hours to complete and Costa Lines offered a monument to thank people of Grenada for the help. They should probably do the same to the people of Isola del Giglio..."
"ST. GEORGE'S - The capital of Grenada is surrounded by a hillside of an old volcano crater and is on a horseshoe-shaped harbor. It has some 24,000 inhabitants"
"WELCOME TO GRENADA, an island country consisting of the island of Grenada and six smaller islands at the southern end of the Grenadines. Grenada is located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela, and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines"
"FLAG OF GRENADA - Adopted upon independence from the United Kingdom, 7 February 1974, the six stars in the red border stand for the country's six parishes, with the middle star, encircled by a red disk, standing for the capital, Saint George's. The symbol in the hoist represents a clove of nutmeg, one of the principal crops of Grenada. The colour combination of red, gold, and green, in the flag is representative of the country's African identity. Red stands for courage and vitality, yellow for wisdom and warmth, and green for vegetation and agriculture (Wikipedia)"
My previous blog - Blogtrotter - took care of the trips recorded in digital terms between November 2000 and early 2009. For the pre-digital era - photos scanned either from negatives or from paper - I created the Revival blogs: Blogtrotter 70s & 80s as well as Blogtrotter 90s. Enjoy!
"He who does not travel does not know the value of men" - Ibn Batuta (1304-1377);
"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move" - Robert Louis Stevenson;
"Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen" - Benjamin Disraeli;
"Evolution intended us to be travellers" - Bruce Chatwin;
"Navegar é preciso, viver não é preciso" - Fernando Pessoa. The common translation is: «to sail is necessary, to live is not necessary...»; some say however that the correct translation should be «to navigate is precise, to live is not precise...». But - taking into account that it has been attributed by Plutarch to Gnaeus Pompeius, who, during a severe storm, commanded sailors to bring food from Africa to Rome… - the real meaning may be the first one!!
