It (see pictures) is too modern a wonder to label but it is used as a tourist lookout. So call it, “Kingstown Lookout – a ‘Wonder of the Modern World’ of SVG.” It is overlooking Kingstown and it is midway between the top of Gibson Corner and Midway Butchers. It is the roof of somebody’s home.
This nonpareil wonder; this so elegant a wonder; this so futuristic a modern design; this so peerless a thing of beauty, it would not be found anywhere else. Leastways, not until some less modern country send a top backward engineer — or an Ebenezer Scrooge — to copy how we do a lookout.
It shows that we are in a state of readiness for the influx of tourists in September when international flights start. Do we have Glen Beache and his SVG Tourism Authority to thank for this modern marvel?
Whether or not whomsoever has an arrangement with the owner is none of my business. But I hope he (it could be a she) realizes that should there be a mishap and an American tourist, say, falls over the eight-inch bulwark, down the fifteen-foot drop, a law suit would likely be coming their way.
And if there is a mishap, to which wonder hospital in which modern world would the injured tourist be carried? Back to the ship, nuh.
