  1. I'm so homesick, it physically hurts. It's not long until I am on my way back, but the few months I have left, they really seem like a long period of time for me at the moment.

     

    I really can't stand this constant brick+mortar+concrete "look" anymore, not to mention the weather here.

     

    All I can think of is this:

      Most recently my work has had me reading up on Trinidad (following Miller and Slater) which has been very illuminating in terms of culture, but the development of Haiti as a sovereign nation is an informative history, and actually in many ways foreshadows USA foreign policy towards several revolutions over the following centuries/decades, most specifically in my mind Vietnam. Back in my undergrad I used to be more focused on history and my school had more or less a focus on "the Atlantic World" which centered around issues relating to the Caribbean.

       

      I have many friends and contacts from various islands (mostly Antigua, Trinidad, and Jamaica though), and interacting with their extended families and friends gives me a little bit of insight to their cultures and relationship to their home. Maybe one day I'll find the time to go there.

      If you ever get there, and the usually higher temperatures don't bother you too much, it's really going to be worth your while I'd say. :-)

      Can't say I blame you. Cities stink, and that picture is gorgeous! :-)

       

      How long before you get to go back? The school year here ends in just a week or two...
