It’s been a busy couple of weeks. I was lucky to assist a fellow PCV with her summer Wilderness Camp in the Blue a Mountains for teenagers who had never been to a camp before.
Denbigh is similar to a state fair, but is much more agriculturally focused and is an island-wide event. Add in loud reggae music and old time festival song, plus a few jerk pans and you’ve got Denbigh! It was a really cool cultural and cross-sector experience.
I topped off the week with some relaxing in Negril on the west coast of the island. A few friends and I celebrated a fellow PCV’s birthday by hitting up a concert on that end.
Even Peace Corps Volunteers deserve to have some fun 😉
I’m happy to finally be back home, enjoying the Independence Day festival special on TV with my host family. Happy 53, Jamaica!
