JIM'S WORK TRIP TO:
St. Lucia is the sort of island that
the Caribbean dream about--a small, lush tropical gem that is still
relatively unknown. One of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles,
it is located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between
Martinique and St. Vincent, and north of Barbados. St. Lucia is only 27
miles long and 14 miles wide, with a shape that is said to resemble
either a mango or an avocado (depending on your taste). The Atlantic
Ocean kisses its eastern shore, while the beaches of the west coast owe
their beauty to the calm Caribbean Sea.

St Lucia National Anthem
Sons and daughters of Saint Lucia love the land
that gave us birth. Land of beaches,
hills and valleys, fairest isle of all the earth. Whosesoever you may roam, love, oh love, our island home.
Gone the days when nations battled for this Helen of the West. Gone the days when strife
and discord, dimmed her children’s toil and rest. Dawns at last a brighter day, stretches out a glad new way.
May the Good Lord bless our island; guard her sons from woe and harm. May our people,
live united, strong in soul and strong in arm. Justice, truth and charity, our ideals forever be.

El Salvador National Anthem
Let us salute the motherland,
Proud to be called her children.
To her well-being let us swear
Boldly and unceasingly to devote our lives.
1. Of peace enjoyed in perfect happiness,
El Salvador has always nobly dreamed.
To achieve this has been her eternal proposition,
To keep it, her greatest glory.
With inviolable faith, she eagerly follows
The way of progress
In order to fulfil her high destiny
And achieve a happy future.
A stern barrier protects her
Against the clash of vile disloyalty,
Ever since the day when her lofty banner,
In letters of blood, wrote "Freedom",
Wrote "Freedom", wrote "Freedom".
2. Freedom is her dogma and her guide;
A thousand times she has defended it,
And as many times has she repelled
The hateful power of atrocious tyranny.
Her history has been bloody and sad,
Yet at the same time sublime and brilliant,
A source of legitimate glory
And a great lesson in Spartan pride.
Her innate bravery shall not waver:
In every man there is an immortal hero
Who knows how to maintain the level
Of the proverbial valour of old.
3. All are self-denying and faithful
To the tradition of warlike ardour
With which they have always reaped fame
By saving the motherland's honour.
To respect the rights of others
And base her actions on right and justice
Is for her, without infamous intrigue,
The constant and most firm ambition.
And in following this line she persists,
Dedicating her tenacious efforts
In giving hard battle for battle;
Her happiness is found in peace.
