Photographer's Note

The people on Dominica are among the friendliest I have ever met. We met this fellow on our hike to Milton Falls.

We were near the base of Morne Diablotin when this photo was taken. The base of this mountain is littered with banana groves and citrus orchards. The fellow and his friend were heading to the market after a hard day's work. The driver was gracious enough to stop the truck so that we could chat. The smell emanating from the freshly picked produce was divine.

Dominican produce is exported to many countries throughout the world. We were told that one of the countries Dominica does not export produce to is the United States and this is due to the monopoly the California and Florida fruit growers have over the industry in this country.
