Track and Field Music/Singing Volunteering
October 4, 2014
Last weekend, West Indian Lynk hosted its first event of the semester and it was definitely a success. We spent Friday night cooking, baking and bonding, and Saturday afternoon we hosted a social and finally got to enjoy the fruits of our labor. At home, its pretty common for holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas to do at least some prep work and baking the night before the event. We usually prepare and eat A LOT of food.
For our event we prepared typical Bahamian cuisine, which included fried Snapper (fish), Johnny bread, macaroni, conch fritters, and pound cake.
About six of us shared this counter. Believe me, there was never a dull moment:
The fish we cooked with was the Red Snapper. My favorites are the Nassau Grouper, Snappers, and Margate Fish.
The finished product. From top to bottom is: fish, macaroni and johnny bread. On the right-hand side are conch fritters.
My theme this weekend is pretty similar to last week's: food. My roommate and I headed to Carytown for dinner on Friday, and I must say I was pretty impressed with the dining options in Carytown. Carytown is about 12 minutes from campus and I’d definitely recommend it for others interested in getting out of this bubble that is the University of Richmond. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from as well as a theatre and clothing stores. Best of all, it’s a safe place at night.
Here I am enjoying dinner at Mellow Mushroom:
It was fun connecting with my roommate, but the food was also really good...five star worthy I'd say.
Everyday I'm better adjusting to life in Richmond. A year ago, I would've never thought I would like this place as much as I do now.
Anyway, I'd better get back to work. Until next time!
