June 12

In the morning we all went to lectures, by the authors of our class books, and then basically relaxed for the afternoon. Ali and I went to Half-way Tree and it was quite the experience. We went shopping for shoes that we could wear to the clubs because 'slippers' aka flip flops aren't tolerated. While walking the streets it was frequently pointed out that we were white. We were used to the attention, but in the hot heat and crowded streets it seemed overwhelming. We found shoes, bought mixed CDs and once again ate KFC mashed potatoes (one of our staples in Kingston). KFC is where the most interesting events of the day took place. A man literally followed us around for ten minutes and Ali's personal space was compromised by middle school girls, but at the end of the day we ended up getting super cheap and fabulous CDs. I can't even tell you the amount of phone numbers we had thrown at us, it was like we had signs on our heads reading:Single. All the attention was annoying and made us feel uncomfortable so we decided to go back to campus. While we were relaxing in the Italia dorms a friendly little lizard wandered in. Then we wandered out to enjoy this sunset and this polite young friend of Bruce's.
