Braille labels found in St. Lucia

Just imagine my surprise when I discovered that some of the products in a pharmacy in St. Lucia had Braille labels on their boxes.  I discovered this great find during my 2015 annual summer trip to this tiny Caribbean island and boy was I delighted.

I have seen Braille labels before on a sporadic basis but I certainly did not expect to find them in this particular neck of the woods.  Now, allow me to clarify for you.  The box in question that I discovered was denoted with the name of the product in Braille, just one line of Braille.

This was enough for me to light up with glee. Then a closer examination of other boxes on the shelf enabled me to discover that several others also had Braille notations on their fronts.

This, to me, is a start and I look forward to more progress.
