From October 2010 to January 2011 we were living and undertaking voluntary work in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We posted many entries during this time on numerous topics related to the islands. We were based on Middle Caicos and there are posts about our work and visits to places on this island. There are also subjects relating to North Caicos, Providenciales, Grand Turk, Salt Cay and East Caicos. Some of the topics covered by our posts are given below:
