I landed safely yesterday afternoon along with my fellow colleagues, and we have all been caringly deposited at our respective apartments. I’ll fill you in on the details as soon as I have a reliable internet connection, but until then I thought I’d share with you my first few senses:

Sight: stormy skies, corrugated metal, peeling paint, palm trees, stray cats 

Smell: flowers, burning garbage, bleach

Touch: scratchy sheets, cool tiles, sticky warm air

Taste: ice cold fresh coconut juice, plantains

Hear: birds, reggae, dogs, cars
