Let's take a look at the beautiful tropical island - Dominica!
Even containers are tropical in this part of the world.
This is the local population of Dominica. The green national flag has an image of a bird - the imperial Amazon. It looks harmonious and reflects the obvious features of the island, which is covered with greenery. This parrot - the endemic of Dominica - is on the verge of extinction.
During the high season in the Caribbean, a huge cruise liner daily comes in the port of the capital of Dominica - the city of


Many islands in the


are famous for their beaches, but the Dominica's main pride is the numerous rivers and inland waters. Dominica is the greenest Caribbean island. :)
It seems, even local beer partake of Brilliant Green, but this is only at first glance.
