3rd Entry - July 26
I’ve continued my work with the GEF CReW project as well, meeting regularly with Donna Sue about presentation formats and style for the conference in October. This has provided me with the opportunity to substantially improve my Prezi skills and experience.
I have also had the opportunity to participate in a long day of field-site visits. We traveled to Negril, where we saw sea-grass installation beds, Shore-lock beach erosion prevention sites, and the graduation of a group of trained beekeepers. Though, like many site visits with large groups, this trip run far off schedule, the places visited and the people met were worth the 8+ hours on a bus.
As with previous months, this one was also full of fun Jamaica adventures, including waterfall jumping, SCUBA diving, and buses as hot as saunas.
Last but not least, let me extend my warmest gratitude to all my friends and coworkers here at UNEP and Jamaica as a whole. It was been a great time, and I hope to stay in touch with as many of you as possible.
Being patient with schedules that are run on Jamaica (Island) time, and continually trying to weather the weather.
Don’t be afraid to ask. Always travel with water. And never stop exploring. Oh yes, and of course three months worth of skills and knowledge from working with a wonderful group of welcoming and amiable people.
