Antigua and Barbuda: Islands under Siege
Antigua is beautiful. Antigua is too beautiful. Sometimes the beauty of it seems unreal. Sometimes the beauty of it seems as if it were stage sets for a play, for no real sunset could look like that; no real seawater could strike that many shades of blue at once…. No real sand on any real shore is that fine or that white (in some places) or that pink (in other places)….
