Karaoke, goats, Bingo, more flowers and farewells. We’ve left Jamaica for other adventures but there are interesting bits and pieces of our time there that I want to keep a record of and they just didn’t fit into any other blog post. Here they are!
I’ll start with a photo of Dave swimming in the ocean.
Most evenings Dave and I cooked supper at our bed and breakfast or went out to small local places where we could get supper for around $5. Our first Sunday in Jamaica however we splurged and went out for an elegant dinner at the Piper’s Cove Villa. We went back our last Sunday in Jamaica along with our hosts the Beaches and the other three couples who had joined us at the Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast.
I did a post about some Jamaican foods we tried but here’s others we’ve tried since.
Cornmeal cereal with condensed milk and cinnamon, sorel juice, custard apple, Jamaican apple, potato pudding, naseberry fruit and June plum.
On Fridays the regular volunteers don’t come to the Resource Centre where we were tutoring. Dave and I asked directors Mildred and Tony Beach if we could plan a couple of Fun Fridays for the kids and they agreed. We taught them action songs, played board games, took them out for soccer and played games like Scattergories and Pictionary with them. Their very favorite activity however was playing Bingo.
I have already done a blog post about flowers but here a couple more photos that I’ve taken since.
Our last day at working at the Resource Centre the children sang a special farewell song for us. And then we were inundated with hugs and final requests to take photos of our kids. Their families don’t have cameras and they loved it when we took photos of them.
