All over the world, there are events that take place every couple weeks where "hashers," or non-competitive runners/walkers/drinkers, participate in a Hash, which is a paper marked trail that you can either run or walk. The person who sets the trail each week is referred to as the "Hare," and that person might be different each week. Sometimes there are false trails and they can range from taking 30 minutes to 2 hours to complete. Competition is frowned upon. It really is just meant for people to have a good time and do some exploring that eventually leads you back to a bar or rum shop so you can party and socialize. If I've completely confused you with this description, you can read more about it HERE, because honestly, I didn't really get it until I actually participated in it.
Every week the Hash is at a different location around the island. Hash #703, which was yesterday, was located just outside of St. George's and was extremely easy to drive to. I appreciated that as it was my very first hash and Josh was of course not present. Luckily, I went with some friends who have done some previous hashes.

Overall, it was a really fun experience and I look forward to doing some more hashes during my time here in Grenada. I hope that at some point, Josh will be able to participate with me! On On!
