Dear Editor, I went shopping at Bourda Market the other day, buying the usual fruits, vegetables, etc. Quite contented with my purchases, I arrived home to find that my wife had just returned from the very same market and visited the very same stalls with the same vendors. 24

More an alcohol orgy than a Town Week

Dear Editor, Perhaps a better theme for this year’s New Amsterdam Town Week celebrations, especially on Saturday and Sunday last, should have been ‘Drink or imbibe in 2009.’ I thank God I am not a ‘New Amsterdamer’ but it still brings me much shame writing this letter because, as it stands, I am a Berbician, and I traverse this town daily, work there, worship there, and a huge part of my days are spent there. 14
