Silver Linings

Just so you know, dont call me between the hours of 12:30-2pm- the whole country is on lockdown in a modified siesta.

Clearly, I am not used to that so I work late into lunch and late after work even though many do not.

But it is a very special thing to see the animals (cows, donkeys, horses) just grazing along the road as if to say, "humans, you are the squatters."

A group of them were chilling out in the parking lot in front of the office when I was driving into work this morning. Precious.

Anyway, it's nice to live in a country with no traffic.

Full stop. Comma, comma, dash dash.

But seriously, while the slowness and informality of the business culture may be a little daunting, this place is really a walk in the park.

It hot no hell, but there are beautiful qiet beaches all within a 5 min drive. Furthermore, I live on a windy slope and get the best of cool breezes from the atlantic (well, when I open the door).

So... I do miss home. And I miss best friend of the handbags and shoes (aka Imelda #2) and mi heartstring cousin but I am really trying to appreciate the distance.

By the way... I been cooking up a storm!

Dutty gyal and flour anyone?1?!?

Yes- mi barrel box dem reach!
