Delegates were in a party mood last week at the end of each day of meetings for the first ever FOROMIC Symposium to be held outside a Spanish-speaking country. The Latin American and Caribbean participants, among them president of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Luis Alberto Moreno, who was here along with over 1 000 attending the conference at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, joined Barbadians feting at receptions hosted at Heritage Park and Ilaro Court, They feasted on cou cou and flying fish and other Bajan dishes, with the fishcakes being a hot item on the menu at Heritage Park, and when the band Strategy took to the stage, it was a conga line that danced around the stage. At Ilaro Court, partying was in the pouring rain, with guests in soaked jackets and dresses moving “up and down the road”, wining and waving “hands in the air” all the way on the instruction of Soca Queen Alison Hinds on stage. The grounds of the Prime Minister’s official residence were transformed to take on an Oistins Bay Garden look and atmosphere, complete with a Lexie’s Bar and other familiar Oistins names recreated for the occasion.
