As a native Dominican, I feel a deep sense of gratitude that you'd take precious time to theorize on one of the last pristine places left on planet Earth, which destructive man still inhabits. I only wonder, "What motivated you?" I feel bound, however, to note the following: In keeping with your hypothesis, "Naturalistic & Existential Roseau," it is my view that significant weight should be given to historic, native perceptions - anecdotes, if you will, and Dominica's exceptional topography - and how those have over time inform, season and shape practical, pragmatic realties as revealed by the ways Roseau[ans], and by extension Dominicans, are forced to live. A lot of emphasis was given to other "scholarly" findings. It would be quite revealing to know how you view our country, vis a vis its unique geography, and how or whether that geography influenced our noticeable human inventions, vice versa, or both. In parting, I will allow that yours is a commendable attempt. Thank you for once again putting Dominica in the world's limelight, for you did not have to, if you didn't care to. God's light in your travels.

Have read your thesis - great info. It's nice to know that someone has discovered our island and found it as beautiful as we do. I was born in Dominica and left it since 1965 to live here in the UK. I am now looking to do a genealogy chart of my family, and my background, so if anyone out there has any information on the Nanton family please email me.

Hi Niko. I'm Dominican, presently residing overseas. I was, at first, very intrigued that you would choose my homeland for such a study. But, then, I wondered which other quaint city in the world could qualify for such rare analysis? Though it may not be your intention, you are doing yoeman service on behalf of our tourist trade. The photographs of 'places' in Roseau are great. Hope to see more of them as your thesis unfolds. Your undertaking is not an easy one, bearing in mind your cultural and linguistic background. Like Sharon suggested, talk to the elders. They have a wealth of information waiting to be tapped. My best wishes.

Hello Niko, I have just looked at your web site update. You have continued to do a very nice job, to put your information about Roseau and your aspirations with great clarity. Best wishes, David.

Hello Niko, You have done a wonderful job. I was born in Dominica. 'I am a son of the soil'. I have been living and working in the UK for many years now. Very best wishes.

I want to wish you good luck on your master's thesis about Roseau, Dominica. It is so nice when people take an interest in my country and really appreciate the beauty of the Island. Dominica and the people have so much to offer to the world. People fail to realize that an Island untouched by tourism and various industries is unique in so many ways. I pray and hope that your thesis will show that quality and Dominica's charming characteristics. Tip: Please talk to the elders in Dominica. I have learned about what or have a clear picture of what Dominca and its people were like in the old days. I have been lucky that my grandmother has told me some of Dominica folklore that are attached to the Island. If you meet and interview with the elders and the young, I believe it will help you understand what Roseau means to the people.

David G. Wilson,
Hi Nikko,I am pleased to see that you enjoyed my little country so much. I was born in Dominica and spent the first 23 years of my life in Dominica. I now live in New York and love it when people go to my country and enjoy themselves. Please take a look at my website and see how I incorporate my memories of my hometown of Portsmouth in my work.

Ihan kivat kotisivut sulla. Saisinpa joskus aikaiseksi tehdä sellaiset itsellenikin. Aiheena olisi, totta kai, luonnonmaantiede ja varsinkin palsat...
