For those who don't live on small islands (smaller than say, Australia), out in the country means just the same thing as anywhere else, except it's just not that far from town. When I first moved to St. Croix and someone would tell me they lived 'in the country' I wondered where the heck they were talking about. But when my mental parameters of space and time shifted, it was obvious. On Culebra, it is the same. Somewhere around the corner by Las Delicias, it becomes 'the country'. And now, as dear Paul Harvey used to say, you know the rest of the story.
Thanks so much, Jesse!!
