So many things to be grateful this year, as is the case every year, but even though I’m in a country that doesn’t recognize this American holiday, I’m not the only American here on the island. There are a whole group of wonderful people here that celebrate the holiday. Some are visitors like me and many who have traded in their residency in the US for life on the island. If you ever visit, their motives will become quite clear, and you may ponder what your life might be like with such a move.
So this year I’m not only grateful for the awesome family and friends home in the sates and elsewhere, but also for the island and the people who draw me back here each year since my first visit 3 years ago. Thank-you all for opening your door and allowing me to be part of your little piece of paradise. I am truly Grateful.
This is a little video of the Thanksgiving celebrationa and fiesta that took place atop Dr. John’s beach house with a remarkable vantage point to enjoy a feast and good company.
