Patisserie Nemorin in Deshaies, Guadaloupe
Pain au Chocolate $1.50 (1 Euro)
This was light, airy, not too sweet and everything a perfect pastry should be.
Apple Turnover $2.25 (1.5 Euro)
Giao loves apple desserts, and this was quite a nice little hand held pie.
Pizza at Big Banana in St. John's, Antigua
16" Small Pie, Half Pepperoni, Half Sausage and Pepperoni $16
It was kinda pricey, but it was tasty, and it was all we had eaten since breakfast that day.

Snack at the Octagon Bar and Snackette, Charlestown, Nevis
This was the first time we'd had turtle, and in this preparation it was very tender. The skin was a little funky, however. This soup was heart, a little spicy and really good. We also loved the little dumplings floating in the soup.
Fried Fish with Hot Sauce
This was a decent, simply prepared, flavorful piece of fish.
Beef Patty at Alpha Deli, Charlestown, Nevis
Beef Patty $1.50 ($4 EC)
Giao had been feeling ill in the morning, and hadn’t eaten breakfast. By the time he got into Nevis he was feeling better. On our way to the Baths, a lava heated natural pool, we happened upon a little shop selling patties. In Jamaica we had eaten a lot of beef patties and we found that the beef patty at this shop was far better than those anywhere we had tried in Jamaica. The crust was crisp and light and the filling was mainly beef, rather than filling.
