From now on, when an ex-pat bleats on about not being able to get some little thing in Dominica, I’m invoking the ITPYPFLIP clause.
“It’s The Price You Pay For Living In Paradise”.
That’s the whole point about Dominica. No big shopping malls. No 24-7 stores. If you come to D/a with a consuming mindset you’re doomed. In fact one of the challenges of living here is working round things. alternatives. making do with something else. Or doing without, even.
Even having a power cut is a chance to pause, take a breather, chill. God know how these ex-pats will manage when then next tropical storm passes over.
Dominica is not the place for instant gratification. Unless it’s stunning natural beauty you’re after.
