227. PASSAGES. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. A lifetime of travel develops certain opinions on how quality of life is defined. “Paradise” is a tropical island, and Saint Vincent qualifies. But its the things that don’t make it onto the postcards–quality of food for example. I noticed immediately the richness of the soil, which is not necessarily common on volcanic islands. All the fruits and vegetables are grown on the island–nothing is imported. The fish you eat was pulled from the sea a few hours ago; the vegetables and fruits were grown a few miles away. A person I met who splits her time between Saint Vincent and the USA said that “I eat the same things in the same amounts in both places, but when I come to Saint Vincent I immediately lose fifteen pounds off that clean food.”
