Welcome to Grenada!!!

Hello from the Island of Spices!!!
I arrived on Friday night without my bags! I was not a happy camper as I had never lost my bags before so I didn't even think about packing a bunch in my carry on! Anyways I now have all of my things and am starting to get very comfy here on the Island! There have been a few Internet issues that I am trying to work on, but I now have my phone set up and that really makes me happy!

Anyways I thought I would provide you all with a few stats on Grenada!

The main question.... Ummm Where is Grenada?????
