St. Lucia - Celebrating 32 Years of Independence

No art photos this eve. Was at an evening gala at Villa Marconi with hundreds of people from St. Lucia; Lucians, they call themselves.

Thirty-two years ago, they achieved their independence from the United Kingdom and they have never looked back.

Even with the devastation caused by hurricane Thomas last October, the country quickly rebuilt and according to one speaker this evening, all services were pretty well reinstated within a week.

Way to go, St. Lucia!
