I was looking into because I mentioned, did you were you able to find anything about the steal donkey or Hartman? Are So.

A newhart majles duration was usually on. told to ours people and children and stuff landlady North Moss me So. Usually. Cashes in the north. That's. Where the the family laws from. So when I go out there and they will turn around and telling me stuff what heart mind and stuff not necessarily still long. Definitely heart mandate even said, the heart mile was gay that lived up the road and. He had he had a car park says also biscuit your heart minds a. Pretty.

Night. I think as poverty just anything like we have here you know the typical boogeyman or something like that. On your. Say Yes stuff. You tell the kids to try and calm down and you've made Iraq or Hawk man man going to get your thoughts like that. Is. Definitely man. I'm looking into also. Being Down Caribbean, there's a lot of higher culture in an history from way back in the day, and there's apparently a resident. If. Is it pronounced barbadian a word I came across lot as well or bathing art. Of our baby and pirate backing minded sixteen hundreds, I, want to say considered he was the gentleman pirate I palace his name, but it was like. Stead Bonnet. Family in the gentleman pirate back during the black near. OPS He was from Barbados and apparently the only one that he was born in Bridgetown Barbados and sixty eight. They hung him at some point, but apparently he from like a well to do. Wealthy family lived in Barbados during those times and decided, hey, you know I'm GonNa do some some pirated stuff. And decide to go off and do some pirates of is said he joined blackbeard's crew for a town and now the only one because I figured they would be more. I'm she in the Caribbean as a whole. There's a rich pirate culture in Barbados. It didn't seem like there was a lot now I want I wouldn't as as there is and then I don't want to say that there. I don't want sit at the end don't want it isn't because again that's not something that we really focused too heavily on. Here and stuff like that. I mean I mean some people probably know more voted at others but that's not something that is usually passed on heavily media information coming down laying on kids or People in general I saw John More in that research will probably show that they are are have been Departments and stuff are improving. But definitely not as strong as some other. Countries show for sure. I was looking into about this guy. Was I. Don't know if you've played video games but the assassin's creed series some video games. Okay. So they have the black flag, which was like the pirate game, the pirate version of the game. Fairly this guy is a character though from the black flag serey or back flag portion of the game. So. I mean, you've got some mashed are radiant in a in a video game. Out. there. Another one I want to ask you about. So Barbadian is is how you found that. The other word I came across this was it said? How the locals described themselves. Is it pronounced Beijing. Rachel okay.

"The sudden stop in tourism. Prime Minister Mir Motley has long been public about the Diet Dangers. That Barbados faces. She says due to its small size and vulnerability to economic and environmental sharks. And she's joining me now from Bridgetown Barbados Prime Minister. Welcome to the program. I just wanted to ask you how your country's doing in terms of infections in terms of deaths and to ask you whether the I think you've you've had some quite severe lockdowns and how that's working there. Thank you very much for having me A. We are fighting up. Not just here in Bobby. This but in the Caribbean at this point in time I'm actually chairing CARICOM. Which is a member state organization fifteen countries from Bahamas in north to Gannan Surinam? In the south from Bobby in the east of Belize in the West and I can pretty much speak on behalf of all of us that this has been the most event for our country's probably since World War Two. I mean we've heard you speak about that and others in the UK. Speak about the fact that this is for them. Similarly the most destabilizing event Each of our countries regrettably house cases eater countries in our own case we have discipline eighty and we have just about seven deaths Half of the people just under half of recovered but alongside with the pandemic is the very real result of people being able to live and to eat and I noticed. It's not just the Caribbean I've seen stories coming out of Africa and Asia and elsewhere and this is a real balance and listening. Just not your last interview both interviews. It is clearly a problem across the world. Our situation is perhaps a little more unique because we suffer a number of risk one. We are highly indebted region largely because we are perhaps the most traveled dependent and trade dependent region and the world with almost half of GDP coming directly and indirectly and our jobs from tourism. Secondly we are also on the cusp of the climate crisis. If in fact we are four weeks away from the beginning of the hurricane season but what is little spoken about is that the climate crisis has also resulted in droughts and Sargasso weed. Which has meant a number of our hotel establishments restaurants where already suffering before this pandemic and now we had this this global pandemic so that this is a peculiar moment for Caribbean states. Not Just Barbados. And it is one in which we hope we can summon the rest of the global community to recognize that it is now more than ever that we need to recognize. Global leadership is needed and that we need to access that these islands those are vulnerable. Well look I mean you just heard me talking about global leadership. I I just WanNa get your take as the Prime Minister of a significant Caribbean tourist destination. Just a very well-known island nation there in general your big big big big neighbor to the north. The United States of America generally takes Global Leadership. Whether it's a bowler as you heard whether it was the global financial crash of two thousand eight. Whatever it might be it's usually the US it's been absent on the world stage. Does that make any difference to you? In the Caribbean to you particularly in Barbados I think it does generally but I think that beyond the US is genuinely attained for all countries to step up and for all global leaders. If there's one thing that led to see come out of this is a global leadership initiative look seventy five years ago. The United Nations was formed on the twenty fourth of October. We use the opportunity of post World War to create a number vital institutions to be able to bring countries together to protect the most vulnerable. The weakest among us we also use it to create the Bretton Woods institutions. Which we're relying on. But we need to repurpose these organizations and in having a global leadership initiative. Make sure that we are really reacting. What is real? We are told that we can access concessional funding or grant funded only if we have historic per capita incomes that are below certain levels. Well just stand. That is like telling me that I should use my blood pressure reading from two years ago to determine whether I'm vulnerable tonight to a stroke is absolutely futile. And we've been carrying on this thesis an argument for over thirty years we also had problems when the WTO was formed we recognize for example that much of a domestic production would shut down and it would make us more open. When we had nine eleven we had other issues. That were imposed on us. On a one-size-fits-all prescription. No we have this pandemic. We need global leadership similar to what we had post World War Two to become to be able to recognize that we need a plan that protects not just the strongest among us but also the most vulnerable. And what should we really be spending money on? Do WE MAKE. Does it make sense to continue to build large military constructs? When as a result of a mosquito or a pandemic our populations can be put at risk. Doesn't make any sense. Does it make sense for us to see what that is and hurry. Floods every year doesn't make any sense. You lead me straight to the sort of reimagining how the world emerges from this crisis will there be priorities reorganized but just before. I get to that bigger picture. I want to ask you a you. Are you explain how dependent your country is on tourism for for all aspects of business and the economy and just in terms of that vulnerability and the vulnerability of many many other countries around the world? Which don't have developed healthcare systems or solid. Ani's what will happen to you and to regional islands and even you mentioned Africa and other places if this pandemic last longer met much longer can you healthcare systems. Can your healthcare system survive it and your economy island? I think that's the biggest number healthcare systems at one repurpose in order for us to be able to deal with the issues and to stay ahead of the curve. The use the recent jargon but really where we are feeling it more than ever is in the shut down to have a hotel with no revenue coming in to have no airplanes land in from Jamaica Bahamas and the North Rate don't Bari Trinidad in the South These things are having a devastating impact particularly on the smaller islands in the eastern Caribbean and to a lesser extent. Bobby's so that we have to see how we can hold up people up because if you don't have a successful neighbourhood. All of us are at risk in terms of public health. All of us are at risk in terms of LACO security all of us at risk of migration so that we really really need to be able to understand that. This is a lives and livelihoods. This is about Stephen off the pandemic but it's also about keeping people fed and keeping people being able to live permanently. You've been quite forward leaning and your public warnings and your desire to to reshape priorities and the models. By which you you know your your success is judged. For instance you've called for there should be a vulnerability index assessing potentially how exposed to countries to future economic and public health risks like climate change. I wonder how that would work. And you've also you're asking for natural disaster clauses in your sovereign debt contracts. Explain how what that means? And how it would protect you. And other vulnerable countries on the Vulnerability Index Commonwealth Secretariat has in fact settled on a framework since thirty years ago. Nineteen thousand nine hundred thirty one years ago. We believe it needs to be revisited. But we believe that you can't determine whether we need access to funding. Let me give an example. This Caribbean region has the Pale. It point it billion. Us dollars in debt over this year and next year is going to well we. We're having some technical difficulties there with our connection to Barbados. I don't know whether we can get the prime minister bag but for the moment which I'm here because she is back. Oh good Prime Minister Motley. We did the unheard of back in the middle of this Internet connection. We're working from home and it's all little little out that but you know what I just want to ask you a last question because we were interrupted on that one but we get we get the point. You have also launched an initiative of women leaders to help people through this pandemic. I wonder whether you're the first female Prime Minister of Barbados. And you've probably seen that. A lot of female leaders have been held up of having done a really good job whether it's the Prime Minister of New Zealand the Chancellor of Germany some of the Scandinavian and European countries and yourself. Anything about female leadership that you'd like to tout in a case like this in a situation like this simply that we care we care and we have to care because in the same way that we want people to take care of the most vulnerable in the household. We wanted in the country. And I'm asking you to help us do it internationally. That's why we need a global leadership initiative from Pope Francis and others right back to world leaders. That's where we need to be able to look at our debt and restructured repurpose. That's why we need to look and see that Mara. Leadership is important in this world today. And that's why we need to ensure that the Caribbean does not mean invisible and dispensable nor the South Pacific and if our voices have to be spoken over and over and over to make this point we shall not tire to do so because what is at stake is human lives and the wellness and wellbeing global civilization as was envisaged seventy five years ago when the United Nations was established. Thank you thank you Prime Minister Prime Minister Motley Barbados. Thanks for joining us. This with our influence powerful last appeal and of course it's not just tourism is taking a big hit restaurants going out of business all over two in.

Some of them since one thousand nine hundred eighty six when Lebanon now as you can imagine recreates relationships friendships And we are and what. It's extra Fifty employees surrounded me in a big room and I was speaking to the to them and actually I stand up to cheer about it and they were looking at me. I I should i. I grew up on them about the fact that we closing the top job.

When you were very young what was your childhood like in London. You look through your childhood through the experience of getting older but I. I remember a a lot of laughter with my siblings. I've got a elder brother. An elder sister didn't come from a very kind of rich family but at the same time. We didn't really feel like we needed anything. We're kind of well looked after. I think it's anyone. I left both style enlightened stone going into the way the world you kind of way to compare yourself to other people. I really like school as well. I think that was the one of the big things for me. In my childhood I love school. I loved I love music. I love books. I was always kind of guide to the library and having like several books on the go at the same time so it was It was a kind of stimulating. Childhood pairs quite strict in some certain circumstances but Shrimp pepitas tend to be especially the mothers friends from that area of the world. And I know one of my friends always says you know. Barbadian mothers are the fiercest women in the world. Wouldn't describe my mom's face or scary I think Passionate about their children. I think that they always wanted just to do well. I think at the time as well growing up There was a sense of to well. It was kind of looking out for us in the world kind of having to us that. Actually we had to do better. We had to work a bit harder so I think it was more that you so you went to the state school. You did really well at school. And one of your teachers. Encouraged you to apply. To Fitzwilliam College in Cambridge Fitzwilliam as they that it was a head teacher and the deputy head as well. They were all. It was all a big program within the school to get a Gulf apply girl. School was that daunting to you. At the time I mean did you think yep a walk this or I'm never gonNA get in. How how did you feel about that? Process is one of those ones where I my. My first experience of Cambridge was probably through university challenge and that was the first experience of university. The idea of university was through that 'cause I was the third was the youngest child of three. They had guns university so it was one of the the choices that laid out in front of me. There wasn't a kind of your. You're not going to get university. Because that was the point of my parents coming was to get a good education for us. So wasn't daunting I think in a way. It's it's it's how I approach most of my life it's kind of is coming at. You is come suddenly. You're doing you take a new strategy in your stride and it wasn't a kind of like you know we don't get in your new people who hadn't got into where they wanted to get into so and they were still there so it's just one of those things are. I'm just enjoying going for it. The process was great because I was able to engage with current affairs Engage with my own opinions express my opinions in the process of applying for it. I remember the The actual interview day was just really exciting. I love the woman I I ended up. She ended up being my supervisor. Jenny Teichman who is you know who's is sadly passed away but she was fantastic When we had a great discussion about value in about artificial intelligence which was I was interested in that actually applied for computer science even though I stayed with fluffy when he's lost the first year then carry. Don't doing that but it was. It was actually quite a nice process. Yeah he signed. I found out lots pat myself during that process. And that's that's perfectly that's really really ingest. I always say that if you go interview and you feel that you've had a really good discussion. It's probably been a good into your founder off at the Yes program and that helps schoolchildren apply what they learned in the classroom into real life jobs. I believe did. Did you leave school with a career path? Maputo in your head was something that you were were determined to you talk about. You talked about computing. Yeah I think I left school with that in mind but I think there's certain points when you face that kind of what am I gonNA do now? Sometimes it's at school at the time I was school was always going to be followed by university so technically the your question kind of works for the end of university gone down. The path of not gains do compete science. And so. I didn't have an idea about what I wanted to do. I had an idea about the elements of my character. The I thought with translate into the work space. My first job was actually an in sales. I picked out at random to pick random and it was kind of like okay. I need to do something I need to end some money okay. I'm going to try this. We'RE GONNA go for job. I got my first job. It was in financial advising basically sales of mortgages pensions which is good stead for a number reasons. Cells teaches you to kind of talk to anyone and It's good to know about mortgages and pensions. It is like double win there but I think that's When I left university I didn't have my dear about what I wanted to do. The things I realized was whilst I'm doing my first job that I liked were storytelling and jazz. So I think what set me. Let me let me down the road to go towards setting up my own business and also working in the media and you worked for Jazz. Fm Yes that's correct. Yeah I get the feeling that mentoring is really important to you. When did you find out that was something that you enjoyed? How did you find that? I think I think mentoring ultimately has its roots in helping. I think I found out really early on while was at school. I was always one of those people who would volunteer to organize a sponsored. Walk all volunteer to To look after this little school library I think it was. My first job is looking after this kgo library about eighty eight or something. It was a small room with a few books but I was like. Yeah Your Library and exciting and also just saying that's why to play or let's do something that in a way is is helping because it's kind of saying we're GonNa do something together and it's GonNa be fun. It's GONNA be exciting. It wasn't until I was about. My first mentor was probably when I was twenty eight possibly too early for me. Actually yeah do you think you need a lot of experience to to be able to mentor? I don't think you need a loss experienced to mentor. You need you need time to be able to commit to talking to people and being part of their lives if you're going to do ongoing mentorship. I'm still friends with people. I mentored twenty years ago. It's very mutual kind of relationship. Really it is. It does bring you quite close to that person I think. How did you feel when you were given the job as master of Jesus College that moment that you heard? How did that feel really great? I think this moments when you kind of you know film Mickley Punch the Air. Because you're sort of like this is great. Yeah that was one and then when my son got into his school. That was one as well yeah. I was good because the process. The master ship process was so Thura and it was so many different rounds. You know your lesson when you have to think about it and go and see the head hunters then the first. Jesus were two o'clock till ten o'clock tonight the last eight. Jesus eight o'clock in the morning till ten at night meeting. Lots lots people's students all different departments staff Fellows in on mass. That was really really good. I think When I started the process I was probably at sixty percent. Interest is one of those jobs that I'd seen other people around. We do from the various boards. I've been I always thought really interesting of. How did you get that job? Yeah I knew I was interested because I enjoyed my time at Cambridge and during the process it was very mutual process because I had to find out whether it was a role I wanted to do and most importantly was a community to. I wanted to join for ten years so it really was that kind of decision it so they will finding out about me. I was probably about them so by the time. It got to the kind of a k you into the last two. We're going to vote as to whether we want you to be the master. I was fully. I was fully in there so I was fully kind of you know I do want to have this really wanting to swallow so I was very happy. Yes you've been really disappointed. If having started going yeah that might be interesting. It would have been pretty devastating if you go to. Ooh devastating disappointed big Linda. No no no I think I I suppose working in me. During the setting ideas sometimes devastated is a big words. Yeah I think I would've been like oh I didn't get that I and sometimes when you don't get something just in the moment the devastation kind of long drawn out kind of Oh those terrible terrible. Oh the tumor such terrible. I didn't think I would have gone down that path. I think I would have been like okay. That was I met some really great people and it would have been really great but I would've gone else. What else do. Yeah so not devastated. Devastated is a big word. What does the master actually do only have worked this out three or four weeks into their all eight? It's such a variety of things at the core I am the custodian of a fantastic community is a custodianship which I take very seriously.

Especially it's not just that community it's a community of alumni have nine thousand alumni is a community of people who are finding out about.

"bridgetown barbados" Discussed on Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen
"Gwendolyn she was actually a few years older than Lawrence very beautiful woman and she had gone to Howard University but because of the depression had left on back to Harlem born in Bridgetown Barbados. Nineteen Thirteen Gwendolyn. Like Jacob became a foster child when she was seven years old. I think if you know a little bit about Jacob I think by the time he was thirteen or fourteen he. He and his mother didn't get along. He was a foster child when he went to Harlem so Gwynne was from her mother given to a family to come to the US because her mother thought that she could have a better life here so in a sense they were both orphans. Barbara Earl. Thomas is a Seattle based visual artists. She met the couple when she was a graduate student and when the couple grew old she became their caretaker. So when Gwen and Jacob finally got together they were very much on their own and I feel like people were older quicker. I mean this long childhood thing we have going on now. That's just you know that just wasn't happening you know in your fifteen years old and you're sixteen years old. You were making your way. Augusta savage also recognized. Lawrence's Talon once. You found out that he had dropped out of school to focus on painting. She made sure it wouldn't be in vain. Nineteen thirty seven thousand the officers on the project. They said I was too young but she. They advised Back next year I went back to all of Wasn't the anymore. She had not forgotten and she took me back. A sign me up. I was signed on the EASEL. The almost comically bureaucratic name easel division referred to the Group of artists who paint conventional canvas works for public throughout the city. A turning to six weeks and salary was a fabulous our at twenty. Three thousand aces. This was a major turning point. Lawrence's career here. Again is Patricia Hills. He was very involved with showing the history of African Americans in this country and also like to Saint Louis Latour in Haiti. Lawrence was twenty years ago. He was inspired to paint too sought lower from conversations. He overheard at the three. Oh six black. History had never been a major part of his formal education so he immediately immersed himself in research and it became clear that a single painting wouldn't do justice to the story he wanted to portray. I mean people don't know that that revolutionary history but the the Haitian army fought on the side of the US against the British during the revolutionary war. He wanted to bring out that history. Lawrence would choose a serial format and create work focusing on the mistreatment of patients by colonial farmers as well as low richer struggle to educate himself fight military occupation forces and achieve independence for his country completed in nineteen thirty eight. Lawrence's series the life of to Lower. -Ture consists of forty-one panels in many ways this series. What serve as a template for the more astonishing works yet to come. He was a historian as well as an artist and was very important to him to get his message and get the teachings of history across. So that's why he decided to do series so that he would have captions to each one of the pictures so that they were there almost like storyboards for a movie you know. In which you you know you go. From scene to scene and he weaves together in their rhythms really returning back to what? Elaine lock was calling artists to do in the nineteen twenties and thirties. Melanie Harby as a professor of Art History at Howard University nine that African legacy in using tools and strategies from that period to address our contemporary moment. So we see figurative representations of African Americans and powerful stances going back to New Negro Movement and Times revising African American representation. The fact that in the nineteenth century there was a whole visual program a by individuals like not only Richard Alan. The founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church the oldest African American denomination in the states but also individuals like Frederick Douglass. Either beat truth literally using their representation as a way of redefining identity. National Right so in some ways we can think about. Even what Jacob Lawrence grows to do right as a building on this kind of visual strategy of correcting misrepresentations histories of oppression. Laurence POWELL TO SALT. Literature series additional works depicting the lots of big years including Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman. But his most ambitious work was yet to come.
"bridgetown barbados" Discussed on Ridiculous History
"So he he kept his diary during the trip which obviously to this point would be his biggest adventure. Blueberry makes perfect sense and this is our primary source to right correct yeah. They're there's still <hes> the reason fairly good condition for its age. <hes> there are missing missing pages but but that's to be expected but what is in there. <hes> gives a pretty good idea of his time on the island in what he thought about it. How long did he end up on the island ryan. So what's what's odd about this because of the impacted has and how barbados still recognize george washington as an important figure in its history is he only spent seven weeks which which is about the same length of the trip there <hes> and back so there was kind of a fourteen week trip and only half of it was actually spent bent in barbados. He credited this trip to giving him a larger perspective on the british empire and fresh insights on the plantation management agricultural productivity slavery wealth and poverty which is <hes> something he wrote in his journal in leaving bridgetown barbados the capital now. Let's explore that had a little bit further because you had a note about bridgetown where you mentioned that this would have been with this has been the largest city the george washington and seen at this point young life yeah he's mostly spent time in in medium size cities in in virginia <hes> barbados at this point <hes> because of its wealth from the sugar industry was actually a pretty pretty bustling metropolis comparatively to the kind of semi rural area that he'd come from. I'm in virginia so imagine <hes> growing up in some part of georgia. That's not atlanta and coming to mind for the first time the the size of the buildings as you travel through downtown can can kind of give similar effect of a of a different world so you you mentioned that this this voyage taken about six weeks <hes> it's funny in context because is apparently a flight <hes> from washington dc to barbados now is only about six hours so it would have been a real commitment to get to this place and sent and consequently <hes>. It's really interesting they when he was on the ship george washington kind of learned a lot about navigation and he also did a lot of fishing with his brother off the side of the boat and they actually on november second <hes>. They sighted land way earlier than they expected because i guess the the captain wasn't as crack navigators he thought he it was and they thought they were like one hundred and fifty leagues to the east of barbados but then they have this very early call of landho- and you've mentioned this coral reefs in how what barbados is is kind of composed of and so this side of the island they were approaching was pretty treacher estimate would have had all of these rocks and corals and things that would have would have wanted to compare for and expect but luckily they did land <hes> without you know crashing the ship the success right the name of the of the shit. That's right so logically quickly. This success was not <hes> not to be an ironic name at least at that point and they anchored in carlisle bay and that is when he got his first look look at this bustling economy this <hes> absolutely you know alien world to him right and carl as <hes> is now pretty resort already but you can tell why it was chosen as as a landing point because it's an a little concave area in the island and it's full sand but all around it are the rocks and the girl that no described from the atlantic side of the atlantic side is treacherous rocky side in the caribbean sea waves those are softer and make for an easier. You're landing on the kind of split the difference and wind carlisle bay which is still a really prominent port for bridgetown got it so speaking of easy landings here <hes> one thing that's fascinating about this. Is that it. This mode of travel or this. Kind of travel has a lot in common with travel today today in unfamiliar places the number one rule of traveling to an unfamiliar place is that things tend to go easier. If you have a local connection you know sometimes times they call him a fixer depending on the country but sometimes it's just a friend and this is where george and lawrence but you know george starts it's to actualize his dream of moving in these elite circles right yes so they were arranged to to spend some time with the clark family. Get near jenny clark. I'm not sure if you guys have input on that would go with the hard g commit atari. We're gonna we're gonna go with <hes> gibney clark and <hes> he was a prominent merchant and bridgetown. He invited them to his house but at that time his family though he was lawrence washington's wife's uncle right yes yes and mrs clark actually had had smallpox so george was a little bit <hes> skeptical about going there he had not suffered from it but lawrence had and so he was immune but this illness was enough to keep the washington's from lodging from them <hes> as they originally intended which actually turns out to be a benefit because that particular house is further away from the city centre bridgetown and instead the brothers stayed with james carter was a relative of of the carter family. That was pretty well known. I'm back in their hometown in virginia so they stayed with him for for the first <hes> four days of this of this trip and then lawrence's doctor dr william hillary who <hes> he was recommended to go see while he was in barbados suggested that they go further up as you go into the center of barbados it elevates an kind of the center of the island is mountainous and the air is drier obviously to way from the the humidity of the sea but fortunately for this story they weren't able to find and any lodging up there and they return back to the city where george who was not stuck staying in bed was able to go out at night he actually took in his first <hes> theater play at this time <hes> he went to dances and dinners was social elites like he'd always desired he ate at the nicest homes and the country tree he met with military leaders. This was kind of his first experience with military leaders and something that is really unique about barbados is it's the only british colony that was never lost britain ever lost it due to military conquests or anything they've always been able to fend off the invaders the french and and others others heavily fortified right and this is also is one of my favorite details. This is also george washington finds one of his favorite foods right yeah he <hes> he first tasted the pineapple during the trip which is a superior snack. I'm just going to say yeah. I mean it's it's a great fruit and it's one that he <hes> he carries with him. Throughout his life and is is seen almost every dinner that he hosted in the white house <hes> he loved it as a as a post dinner dr cleanser kind of and you guys know that it's pretty refreshing and it it becomes something that he kind of talks about. You know when you take a trip <hes> <hes> any training food for the next few months. That's all you talk about well for george. That's <hes> that's kinda becomes his life he kind of has as pineapple antidote nearly all of his conversations so i love i love that idea and it's going to color the way i think about all his conversations for the rest of my life. At least east i wanna go somewhere interesting with this in a bit of a securities fashion so we know from his own writing that he he was amazed by not just barbados itself but by barbados in comparison to virginia right because virginia was more rural less intensely cultivated cultivated <hes> and he talked about how there were just people everywhere. I think you said specifically everywhere was furnished with inhabitants and while this this was a good thing for him. It probably led to <hes> his medical concerns as well right yeah while he was there going to these parties <hes> he's in the early prime. If is adulthood <hes> he's taking women to theater. He's going on dates hold on. Is that a euphemism taking someone to the theater could be okay. We just wanna be clear <hes> but yeah he he's you know he's doing what what most people do in their in in their late teenagers and <hes> during this time he contract smallpox despite not staying at the clark's which is an important note in the story away fisher smallpox as he contracted on the island where he was already in a home that had frequent doctors visits he had servants to wait. Wait on him. He was also in a good climate to recover from it. If there weren't <hes> wasn't anything taxing he was yeah. Let's not forget. He was there in the first place with someone one who is suffering from a free debilitating condition to help them convalesce so this was sort of an optimal place for him to catch this and and probably whether it in a way that maybe wouldn't have been the case back home right fine yeah so if we think about washington the revolutionary war general he is able to recover in a bed in warm beautiful tropic topic barbados oppose the battlefields <hes> where many of the soldiers died from smallpox so <hes> as i mentioned earlier lawrence as you contract smallpox and recover if you're successful then you have immunity to <hes> and this is actually credited as a reason for george washington washington success in that war <hes> in the revolutionary war but also barbados <hes> like i mentioned before is important because he gets exposure to british i military tactics <hes> while meeting their which also plays plays a part in his war successes that have been through first hand encounters with british military officers estimate of these fancy dress address parties. You know exactly yeah he was able to the house is his house that he stayed at and is still there is right next to one of the largest forts on the island right and and he would frequently go there for lunches and dinners and have conversations with high of generals which in the american military or the colonial military at the time who you wouldn't really have access to that level of information right and it's information of what would later become the opposing forces forces say it's easy to forget the time washington is a subject of the british empire. You know i mean that's that's what's up. He is <hes> he's definitely not a british citizen but he's on their side. Technically he has no idea to become <hes> such a figure in in american history me. That's the most fascinating part of this story. He has no idea just to continue. He has no idea that the united states will even be thing. This is a very different look at this guy and also while we're doing a very different look <hes> i propose we do a very honest look because this is something <hes> whenever we talk talk about the founding fathers. This is something that often gets skirted around or circumvented but this guy was not a saint right. He has actually really been dogged by some rumors or allegations that he left his mark on her betas in more than one way he's been <hes> people have said that. He actually fathered some children. Yeah you know when i was there. <hes> several of the people we met with including <hes> dr kara watson ho come up later in this in this podcast would often make jokes <hes> with local saying. Is your last name washington. Are you look like one washington kids. <hes> it's a it's kind of a joke that he's kind of the father of the island in in his in his <hes> seven week period he it's possible that he may have helped conceive <hes> at least a handful of children and <hes> it's kind of a it's kind of an interesting idea because as many of you guys know he didn't have children of his own that he claimed that that you know we're showing as as <hes> direct descendants of him none with martha washington ripe yeah and it often thought that he was actually sterile due to a previous bout that.
