Ecuadorians given Bajan Xmas treat
Ecuadorians studying at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, received a rare Christmas treat on Friday night.
The 50 teachers, who are part of the seven-month Teach English Caribbean Programme, were guests of principal Professor Eudine Barriteau at a celebration held in their honour at The Mount Restaurant.
There were entertained with poems, singing and line dancing.
During the segment hosted by popular comedian and entertainer Carl Alff Padmore, the South Americans were thrilled by the music of the tuk band, eagerly joining in the fun with Mother Sally –– some even venturing to learn some of her signature moves.
The Campus IT Services, which shared hosting duties, joined in the fun, singing carols and the Bajan version of the traditional Jingle Bells.
The Ecuadorians also showcased their culture in song and dance, with some of the teachers wearing traditional highland outfits.
The fun could not end without the sampling a wide array of dishes, including the traditional jug-jug and Bajan fruit cake.
