In Grenada the unofficial national pastime is “Liming”. It has nothing to do with the citrus fruit, and it’s less of an actual definable activity and more of a state of being.

So what is Liming? It can involve doing something, or nothing at all. It can involve people, or not. Dominoes, drinking, and eating are all fair game too.

Although it almost defies a fully comprehensive verbal definition, I would say Liming combines the art of conversation, with something to do, and even a state of heightened observation. It’s best done in the company of friends, and if you can swing a cool drink and waterside locale, all the better.
