I am about to board a flight home to Toronto from Jamaica, and while sitting in the airport I remarked to my boyfriend that Jamaica would be a difficult country to live in as a person with any kind of disability. There are very few ramps and most of the roads and sidewalks are uneven, not to mention I didn’t see many accessible bathroom stalls while I was here.
Have you visited anywhere that presented some accessibility challenges? How did you get around them? Since being diagnosed with PD, have you tended to avoid visiting places that aren’t fully accessible?
