So this post is an amalgamation of things that have just happened or pictures I've gotten from other people. Above is a bunch of pictures from Shark Bay, a beach about 15 minutes away from the center that we went to for resource management last week. It was a class session about pollution management on South Caicos and we were looking at different waste sites on South--- intentional ones, like the dump, and unintentional ones, like some horrendously polluted beaches and docks. It was interesting and somewhat sad to see the different in values of Turks islanders as compared to US or European citizens.. they see throwing trash out the window no different than taking it to the dump, because regardless it will be outside. It is an education and motivation problem here, which will hopefully be addressed so sidewalks, streets, and beaches can be cleaned up and marine life less affected. Long story short, it was a productive afternoon and we got some fun time at the beach.
I finally got the pictures from sharking on Middle Caicos over the field trip. They were on someone else's camera and now it is fun to remember that night. Gorgeous evening in between the two islands, North and Middle Caicos, even though it left me with horrible bug bites. Plus a legit picture of my scraped up leg ;)
I'm a twenty-something from the Pacific NW making home in new places as I follow where God leads.
My intent is to show Christ's love to the world and use business to solve some of the social problems we face: hunger, illiteracy, healthcare, economic hardship. For now, I'm in a stage of learning. A little adventuring, a few books, some good friends, and a whole lot of prayer and life runs on.
