Upon arrival to the Cayman Island some things become immediately made apparent, taxi cabs provide locomotion anywhere for 5 dollars and I have not been living well enough! There is natural way of living, embracing the sun, the sea and the sand. There was never a lack of smiles on the faces of everyone on the island.

Not only was it the easiest over the counter transaction I’ve...
