Buffett's genre is tropical rock. He laments arriving too late to sail the ocean, plunder treasure and live the high life.
However, the Caribbean tropics did get the reputation honestly. The first governor of these islands was a pirate. And there are forts scattered throughout the island to protect from the pirates. The above pic is one that the Lovely One took of Fort Fincastle. The fort and cannons are at least a couple of hundred years old, and the cannons are now aimed at cruise ships.
There are still pirates of the Caribbean as well. They occupy the shops downtown, and infest the government and every strata of society in this island nation. They now wear business suits.
