movie scene

Friday I had the opportunity to go up the north eastern coast of Grenada to what used to be Pearls Airport.  It has been abandoned since they built the new, much more convenient Maurice Bishop Int. Airport.
Pearls is about an hour away from the main tourist sections of Grenada, Grand Anse, St. George's etc. and also from SGU which would be terrible for students coming in and out of the country!
Maurice Bishop Airport opened in 1983, so before then Pearls is all the people had!

There are two cargo planes that have been left there for the last 30 years.  I was told they were American planes and they have some red, white, and blue painted on the side, but then I read on Wikipedia that they are Cuban planes (which is also red,white, and blue)
So I don't really know, but I know they had something to do with the 83 invasion of the US into Grenada.  The US invaded b/c they thought Grenada was in cahoots with Cuba and were building the new airport for / with them.

I got to do another photoshoot with yet again 3 photographers! My friend Ashley wasn't able to come this time, but a local photographer named Dwain came and we had a ton of fun.  I got to climb in the planes and act silly...
This was a much more natural look.. I only have on face powder and mascara!  I thought the last time I had on too much make up and it kind of made my eyes look funny.... but now I think I had on too little make up for this one. haha I need to meet in the middle. 

Here are a few picture that my friends have posted so far, more to come I hope!!

Your eyes are phenomenal, which no doubt you are aware of and have heard before, but since is the first time I've had the opportunity to enjoy them... well... nobody hates a compliment. ;-)
