Amani week 1

Amani Lee at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve.

This week we visited the Barbados Wildlife Reserve for the first time and took a tour of it. It fascinated me how much freedom the animals had and their confidence levels were high when it comes to being surrounded by humans. The monkeys were very free roaming and ambitious whenever food is around or given. There were about three infant primates, who were just born sometime this week, attached to the stomachs of their mothers. There were lots of what are called “juvenile” and “ilngs” primates which the next step above being an infant. I am also learning how to be a leader in the classroom. This week, my discussion group had to present chapters 3 and 4 from the book, Measuring Behavior by Paul Martin and Patrick Bateson.

The country so far is amazing. There are a lot of things that are similar to America as well as similar to my home country of Haiti. There’s an amazing mix of city to country and farm, to jungle. I haven’t gotten a feel of the locals yet, but hey it’s the weekend! So we’ll be going out a little bit more and interact, maybe get to ask a few questions to locals. I can’t wait to further experience it so as to gauge my personal class discussion topic of what the major traditional influences the sociocultural and political roles of Barbados.
