Nutmeg World

One of the perks of a "volun-cation" is that we end our teaching usually around 2PM. That leaves the rest of the day for us to explore Grenada. On Thursday, we were picked up at the college and were taken to St. John's parish to the town of Gouyave to visit the largest nutmeg factory on the island. Grenada is one of the world's top nutmeg producers, second only to Indonesia.

The most memorable part of the tour was seeing how the nutmeg is packaged in burlap sacks, and stenciled with the name of the country it's exported to. There were stencils for every country in the world.  Of course, we found Canada.
