Impressions of Jamaica

Jamaica is the land of Food and Water
It is tropical and beautiful.
Getting through customs was a breeze literally
only took about 10 minutes once we lined up.

Just arrived outside the airport
Diesel is heavy in the humid air
waiting for the bus to the resort
We snap this incognito so we are cannot be recognised
you can call me agent 99 and the Mr. Max
Within moments of being here we were asked
if we needed Koosh....this is when we decided
to go into witness protection mode...
all dark sunglasses and mystery...
you can't be too careful in a foreign country
'Ya Mon'  'Irie Irie Red?'
The bus stops at the local watering hole
this man is my new best friend, well he wanted to be....
 We will call him 'Rastafarian Man'
I would have dolled up a little more
if I'd have known we were doing a
photo shoot
On the veranda of our room
Happy Anniversary to us
The resort is huge and beautiful

We have waited over 10 years to
our leave our footprints on a tropical shore


We met up with a band of Pirates

It didn't take the Sea Witch Calypso
long to make a play for Steve
I am more of a Scallywag magnet

Thanks Jamaica and we will be back


I have to add that the people we met were friendly
and very sweet. Every worker we encountered
seemed to work very hard.
We know from speaking with them that they
make a poor person's wage. Their income
is heavily subsidized by the tips you
place in their hand or under the
pillow for your maid.
Remember to be generous, they may live
in Paradise. But, we who are able to travel
can certainly budget for being a good tipper.
