The most interesting part of our day was a visit to two schools - Eltham High School in Spanish Town, and Excelsior in Kingston. This was extremely enlightening, to see the differences (and similarities) between schools in Canada and schools in Jamaica.
|The Canadian Embassy in Kingston. We were officially on Canadian soil today!|
|It was very strange seeing a Canadian flag next to a palm tree.|
|This is Eltham. The hallways are outside.|
|There are 40 - 50 kids per class.|
|This is Excelsior now.|
|Part of the school yard at Excelsior.|
|Some boys after football camp at the school.|
|There is no glass in the doors or windows. Classrooms are totally open to the elements.|
|I cannot get over these goats. They just wander wherever they please!|
But someone told me today that they go home to their owners at night!
|I'm participating in the August Break.|
