L'Escalier Tête-chien, or the Snake's staircase (direct translation: 'Dog head staircase') is a lava formation which is located at Sineku village, on the east coast of Dominica. According to a Carib legend, Master Tête Chien made the staircase when the Earth was still soft.
The British named the location Jenny Point but it is usually called L'Escalier Tête-chien.
Kennedy Francis, whom we had met before, took us to the staircase. The sea was too rough to descend down to the seaside. On my previous visit to the Dominica eight years earlier I was able to go down to the seawater pools.
