Harvey Gamage arrived in Virgin Gorda, BIV (Trellis Bay). While on the island students engage in some public service in support of the Gli-gli Project. Students met Aragorn, one of the creators of Gli-Gli: a small traditional dugout canoe built from one tree on Dominica for the Carib people to make a connection with indigenous people in the Caribbean region. The canoe made an 800-mile voyage to South America. While on the island, students also swam, explored the island, and had a beach barbeque.
Meanwhile, students aboard schooner Virginia are just getting underway from St. Thomas. They are arriving in Buck Island and will spend time in Road Town doing community service, visting with local Caribe indians and viewing their handicrafts. They will visit the Roti Palace where Gene, maven of the Palace, will teach them to make (and eat!) Roti.
