Highlights near Basseterre


The building where I lived while serving in the Peace Corps was right downtown in the capital city of Basseterre. This is where all of the cruise ships dock and all the action takes place. During Carnivale the locals mount massive amplifiers on flatbed trucks and the booming of the bass notes make windows shatter! I took to my roof to get out of the crowds and was able to get some great photos shooting down on the parade. FYI, St. Kitts is an 18-mile long, 5-mile long island in the Eastern Caribbean with beautiful sand beaches, zips lines, sugar plantation tours and a fabulous hand-made batik fabric business you can tour.
