  5. Jamaica Something New for Health Education Officers

    In July of 2007, these Jamaican Ministry of Health Officers were using overhead projectors with transparencies so low in contrast that they were barely legible.

But oddly enough, the things I thought I missed the most about home, I missed while I was there. I rubbed my feet back and forth through the soft carpet, blasted MY music in the car while driving, drank endless amounts of milk and OJ, and took long hot showers. But when its out of sig...
