Alcoholism is a problem on volcanic Saint Vincent, where they make their own rum. In 1902 two thousand people were killed after a volcano erupted. It is still active today. Perhaps the locals live as if it were their last day?
At dusk, the local population meets for a beer in pop-up pubs. I joined the happy crowd and discussed life on the island. People spend their days on the streets, where they gossip, trade, laugh, and eat and drink.
