Barbados Highlights – Weeks 3 and 4


At the beginning of the third week, we had the privilege to cook with Mrs. Reid. From her cooking lesson, I learned different ways spices are used here in Barbados and among my peers. We used mild peppers to add flavor to the ground beef.

Barbados Highlights – Weeks 1 and 2

Barbados Highlights – Weeks 1 and 2

My first weekend here in Barbados was spent at the Crop Over 2012 Opening Gala. The aroma of delicious food filled the air along with the sound of Barbadian music. Admission was $15 Barbadian dollars ($7.50 USD) and it was well worth it because we got to watch young Barbadians perform at a Youth Talent show.

Barbados Week One


Twenty-one University of Washington students left Seattle and made it to Barbados in one piece. On the way we laughed together, ate together, and survived the 10-hour flight together. As a group we expected sunlight, not for it to be raining like Seattle weather.
