On of the best things about walking through the centre of Basseterre are the soundsystems that you find everywhere: DJ's playing load music blowing out of huge speakers on the pavement.
Most of the times these soundsystems are in front of musicstores, promoting their music. But sometimes they are in front of other shops or bars as well. The music that is being played there is purely Caribbean: reggae, dancehall, jump-up... As long as it is loud and has a heavy beat, is it there!
One important tip: when there is a soundsystem on the pavement: make sure you cross at the other side of the road, or you will have painfull ears! :)

We thought this was so funny the first day we looked out and saw pigs all over the grounds at the Nesbit Plantation.Then at the Qualie Beach Club we saw cattle grazing on the lawn.
I guess this is the eco way of trimming the grass.

It you're looking for fine jewelry, perfumes, liquor or luxury items you can find them in Basseterre, the capital of St. Kitts. Duty-free shops are both in the downtown area and at Pelican Mall, at Port Zante. But why go to St. Kitts to buy stuff made on the other side of the world? The best crafts and souvenirs often can be found in a local market or even at a small stand in the countryside, such as the one pictured here. In the photo my sister, Cathy, is purchasing a figurine of seashells from the woman who made it with her own hands. The transaction resulted in two happy people - the seller and the buyer.

Beach attire is only suitable at the beach. You'll find that the Nevisians dress conservatively.
If you happen to be walking in Charlestown, don't be surprised if a stranger says good-morning. Just smile and say good-morning back!

St.Kitts even has their own Medical University. How would like to study there. They actually based a tv series on it years ago (I know, old news). Ok, they have their own brewery! Red Stripes for everyone....which is a good way to meet anyone. I can't remember if tips were included??? but I always left one anyway.
