The following morning, we concluded our site-seeing roundtrip on the Island and returned to the airport on the Dutch side.

By now, we had accumulated a three-day delay on our original flight schedule, due to the unforeseen detour around the bad weather in the United States
and the extra day we spent in
the beautiful resort in Punta Cana.


Now it was unfortunately time to move on rather quickly along the lower part of the Caribbean chain of islands to our next stop, where a whole family
of Swiss friends were impatient­
ly waiting for us in Tobago.

The three-and-a-half-hour flight south which led us past the islands of St. Bartholomew, Antigua, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent,
and then direct to Crown Point in Tobago. It was really too bad that we
had no time to stop in one or the other places this time!

Our friends did really go out of their way during the following two days to show us around the island of Tobago, spoiling
us with excellent food and
drinks, as well as with a visit to a typical steel band concert.
