Kiskeya is a Taíno name for Hispaniola, the Caribbean island now occupied by Dominican Republic and Haiti. Kiskeya is usually spelled Quisqueya in Spanish. Here is what it looks like from space.
On the right is a picture of one of my favorite places, a tiny beach at the bottom of a cliff in Cabo Rojo, Dominican Republic. The sand is a fine white, the rock glows pink in the sun, and the sea runs through many shades of green and blue. Ghost crabs scamper across the sand, swallows fly in and out of holes in the limestone, and pelicans dive for fish in the shallows. Most of the time there's no one there. A little ways along the edge of the cliff is the house where I grew up.
