I spent the morning up in Paramin with my friend Rosie. This is a fairly isolated community up in the hills of Maraval and it is well known for supplying world class produce (i.e. chive, chadon beni, celery, cabbage and tomatoes). The produce grows on steep slopes and thrives. It is a tight knit community where the older folks still speak patois, parang is much celebrated and their blue blue devils are much respected!This is an example of an old chattel house. These are quite rarely seen these days and i still think that they are so pretty.

The Northern Range running off into the distance.
A really old fashioned house. Check the attic window. This was probably used to dry coffee or cocoa.
