Alana: You should probably post this in the Under the Coconut Tree Forum or create your own blog for your digressions into subjects like VITEMA Alerts, dolphinariums, etc.

I was thinking about going to St John tomorrow, but thanks to Alana's post which is directed to residents, etc to stay clear of the area, I've decided to postpone my trip.
