Mokko cooks with a chili pepper called scotch bonnet, only as much as you want! Mokko will share his recipes.

Acommpong, Jamaica

In 1977, we were privileged to travel to the yearly festival in Acommpong, Jamaica. This festival, on January 6th each year, celebrates the independance of the people of Cockpit Country and the People's Law. This year we returned and spoke with Mark Wright, the local historian and tour guide in the area. We brought photos from the 1977 festival and shared them with the local folks. They delightedly recognized many of the people in the pictures.

JAMAICA KITE SURFING

Maho Bay Resort St. John Virgin Islands

One might hear "Virgin Islands", and think about the over populated areas of St. Thomas then opt not to vacation there. But, don't forget about the island of St. John, also part of the United States Virgin Islands, and home to the Virgin Islands National Park.

Almost all of St. John's vegetation was clear-cut away for sugar cane production back in the day, and most of the vegetation growth there today are introduced species. The National Park of St. John works to preserve the island, and avoid the over tourist build up.
