Postcards from the Edge.....of Grand Cayman

Anique is a petite, delightful waitress at one of our favorite restaurants here on Grand Cayman.
I’ve known her for 6 years, but Fred has known her for at least 20. 

She has been on island here for 24 years and has worked all of them at her brother Phillipe's
restaurant.The original The Edge restaurant in Bodden Town was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004.
He now has Over The Edge, the place he built here near Rum Point after the hurricane. 

“I was born in a little town near Lyon. I am 68 years old you know!” Trust me when I tell you,
she doesn’t look 68.  “I have traveled ze world,” she told me in her beautiful French accent.
“I’ve been to Yugoslav, Belgium, Russia, United States, Ukraine and also Egypt. 

“I MUST tell you about Egypt. I was there with my husband. Did you know I was married for
three years before he died of a massive heart attack? Well, I was.He was 29 years old when he died.
But, once we were in Egypt and I wanted to go to ze pyramids. I have always wanted to see ze pyramids.
So, we went to ze pyramids. And right when we were about to STEP into ze pyramids, I had a horrible
feeling that something terrible happened to me in there! I would not go in!  I said ‘No! Something
terrible happened to me in there’, and so we went to another pyramid.  

“In that one, I did not get ze horrible feeling and we went in. Then, in one place ze light beams
shown down on me, and I heard a voice that was speaking to me. It told me things about my life in
Egypt. I will tell you about it some time when we can go to lunch. 

“I am very mystical that way.”

That is a woman with many, many stories to tell - you need to have lunch with her as often as it takes to hear them all!
