Seen in "Grenada at a Glance"

Tropical Smarts:
"Coconuts do fall off trees so avoid sitting under ripe ones."

Sea Urchin Spines: "If broken under the skin, these spines will dissolve in time. To remove protruding ones, apply soft candle wax, let it harden, then pull out. Some people recommend urinating on the wound to relieve the pain!"

We are wondering, depending of the location of the offending spines, would it be polite to ask a friend to help out with the urinating?

  1. I heard the same thing about jellyfish. The other day in the saints a woman I know was stung on the lip. Believe it or not I did not volunteer this remedy as much as I was biting my own lip to do so.
