Vieques on HGTV tonight Sunday

Hi,

I just saw in my TV guide that there is a program about a couple buying a home on Vieques. It is on HGTV at 7:30 Central Time. I think the program is called Caribbean Life.

Kind of funny ... some of the stock "Caribbean island" footage they used during the show was not even shot on Vieques ... soaring, lush green mountains along the coast ... "Rhino Boat" tours (I believe that was from St Martaan) ... and the steel drum music in the background ....

I did not notice the foreign footage in the body of the show but did see it in the introduction. BUT HGTV does take a lot of liberties with the truth. The real story is even more interesting There are actually two identical houses on the property they bought and they are now vacation rentals called Bodhi Playa. One of the women has a PHD in sustainability and the houses that they completly redid are very green! They are super nice and have jumped feet first into the community and among other things have breathed much needed new life into our Humane Soceity.

We do actually have a steel drum tradition on Vieques. here is a huge interaction between Vieques and St Croix and a lot of families have members on both islands.There is a group of older men who all learned steel drums when they were young and they get together and play. One of them has started a steel drum band for youngsters and they are terrific.
