Jamaica was such a blast! I learned what Bammies are, and what Festival is. Both foodstuffs! but I tried jerk chicken and oxtail and goat, and they were all delicious. I went swimming and walking through Kingston, and got a sense of the region. Bauxite is apparently one of the major export products of Jamaica.
My favorite part was helping people one on one in the sessions after my two workshops, because I got to be right in the thick of their problems with fundraising on a small island, trying to start a bird tour or voluntourism program, or simply being restrained in their methods of fundraising because of being a part of a Dutch protectorate. It was fascinating and I really had to think on my feet to help people get creative with fundraising ideas.
I hope I can come back to BirdsCaribbean and present again, it was so fun and I enjoyed their group so much!
