Last Sunday, January 28th, Ruins Rock Worlds Heritage Café, one of Dominica’s hottest tourist spots, welcomed hundreds of tourists to its unique, cozy confines. These tourists were all passengers of the MV Mein Schiff 3 of TUI Cruises which became the first major cruise ship to visit Dominica after the passage of Hurricane Maria.
The proprietor Serge L’Homme, a heritage advocate who is fluent in 7 languages, gave a speech in German. He expressed his gratitude to the visitors and told them that despite the destruction and difficulties caused by the last hurricane, Dominicans remained strong and resilient. He told them that the hurricane was not able to break the nation’s spirit and the rebuilding effort is well underway.
