Poui At UWI…And A Monument


A few weeks ago, I drove onto the UWI Mona campus via the Post Office gate. (UWI Mona = University of the West Indies at Mona, Jamaica). The poui trees were in bloom and it was a magnificent sight!UWI poui Post Office gate

  1. Been a UWI student for 5 years and never knew the history of Gibraltar Way. I guess it’s because I always drive past the monument. Never came out to read it. Thanks for sharing! And yes the poui trees have been lovely. 🙂

  2. Interesting. I never knew anything about the Gibraltar evacuation before, though it makes sense now that I think about it.
