An aside:

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is a country of 32 beautiful Caribbean islands in the idyllic Caribbean, stretching south from Saint Vincent Island to Grenada. I had heard great reports from friends who had visited St Vincent. And everyone of those friends insisted that I should visit Bequia (pronounced bekway), a green and hilly S-shaped outpost of the Grenadines, nine miles south of St Vincent. Getting there is not simple and i probably more than anything else, has protected it from mass tourism. With no all-inclusive hotels to hole up in, everyone who comes to Bequia has to engage to some extent in local life. Most holiday visitors get around by taxis, which come in the form of little motorboats and open-backed pick-up vehicles. I loved the idea of being able to step back from the 21st century, where I was told, you could, just as well, find a pig and some goats waiting outside the tiny airport terminal, as the flat bed trucks that serve as taxis. My next vacation destination would be Bequia. I happen to be part of a team at a progressive IT company that creates custom software for our clients' specific needs. It it challenging and sometimes stressful. I love the work. It is very satisfying to be able to give a client an app they need to accelerate their growth and improve efficiency. We create industry-specific needs that off-the-shelf software doesn’t address. In many cases there are industries which simply just don’t have off-the-shelf software that can meet their needs and accelerate workflow, so we end up creating the software.  Since our clients have specific requirements for the software, we are constantly challenged to create the best custom apps possible. Taking a break from this type of work is great for the creative juices. I like to find out of the way places that offer a slower paced life style for my vacations. Bequia certainly seemed to fit those requirements. Update: Visiting Becquia was one of the best vacations ever.
