- First time in the Seychelles and loving it! Though I am shamelessly patriotic to the bone, I wouldn't be lying when I say Jamaica is a beautiful island, but hmm, am now convinced we have a close competitor. Feels like heaven to have traded in the grime, muck, plastic (carrier) bags and unmentionables I have come to associate with the beaches in Ghana (especially in Accra!) to those that are pristine, white sands and azure waters!
- First time being in the Indian Ocean - having been accustomed now to the rough pounding of the Atlantic, the gentle break of the waves remind me so much of home;
- First time attending a Rotary Institute - yes, I am a Rotarian. At this Institute there are over 30 countries attending. Will be interesting I am sure.
- First time for the immigration officer to have met a Jamaican national - he was so surprised, and mentioned that in his eight years he had never processed a Jamaican passport before. Told me he had a million and one questions, but alas, alas no time.
