nutmeg of emotion
marble rye recipe on the kitchen
fresh loaf cooling on the sill
essence of orange peel
touch of coconut oil
you set out three silver necklaces
and persecute the unjust
we met walking backwards up a staircase leather belt of broken hearts hanging
from your waist

A day trip to visit the Garifuna village on Chachauate island was one of my highlights. This interesting and unique culture is the result of the ethnic and cultural mix of two distinct races. Of the two cultures is from West Africa. Slaves in transport from Africa to America were shipwrecked off the coast of Saint Vincent, in the Grenadines. They mixed with the local Carib Indians that inhabited the island. Need to survive and keep their freedom brought to very different cultures together and produced a new unique culture.
Over the years, the Brits, who controlled that part of the Caribbean decided that the Garifuna people where becoming a thorn in their foot and captured them, put them on a boat and shipped them to the Bay Islands, Honduras.
Because of their rich and unique heritage and culture, the UNESCO has granted this culture the status of Cultural Heritage of Humanity! #honduras 🇭🇳
