Returning to “The Hot Pot”

I’m going to Barbados next week and plan to resume the Hot Pot project!

Barbados. This is Brighton Beach, where I live. It's empty here, but the whole island turns out to walk up down these sands in the morning.

The Hot Pot. Sitting under the Mount Gay rum factory that hums and grumbles constantly, men (and sometimes women) soak and lime at dawn. The water that flows out from under the factory into the sea is hot.

Arguments abound and get very heated... Different characters with very differing views clash.

The warm pot has dubious health benefits, spewing pungent hot water from the Rum Factory but for generations Bajans young and old congregate here for a morning or evening soak.
