Here's some Jamaica eye candy!
We had lunch "on our own," I decided to try the Seaside Grill and simply had a hamburger -- not very exciting, except for eating it while watching the ocean. I so enjoyed seeing how the color changed during the day. During the time of high noon one sees dark blue, in the middle a beautiful aqua green, and along shore yet another color of blue.
I got dessert at the bar.
Back to conference for a session by Dr. Ruth Westheimer and Dr. Sanford Lopater.
Dr. Lopater teaches a course to college students in the U.S. and listed what students don't know. One thing on the list was what is really sexual harassment. That reminded me of a time in Hungary when I was speaking to a young physician who was going to the United States on a Fulbright. He brought up how to avoid sexual harassment. Turns out he thought he could be accused of that if he allowed a woman to exit an elevator first or opened a door for woman. I explained if anyone yelled at him about those things they were indeed practicing rudeness, but then did explain how sexual harassment relates to issues of power and sex at the same time.
At the close of session, Dr. Ruth asked one of the Jamaican presenters, Dr. Colette Cunningham-Myrie to sing again. Earlier in the day the computer technician was having difficulty loading her session, so Colette stood at the podium and sang a song.
After the close of the session I went with two other professors to the Rose Hall Shops. We got a shuttle ride to the nearby shops.
While waiting for a ride back to the hotel, I was quite taken with the view of the flags against the afternoon stormy clouds.
I was tired and hit the bed early. Another good day in Jamaica, meeting some very interesting people and hearing interesting presentations.
