Back in Jamaica first Impressions

Back in Jamaica visiting my parents my first impressions.

Dirt cheap rally driving route taxis, very expensive charter taxis driving at slightly slower speeds, hotel receptionist without internet access because their owners don’t trust them, clear salt sea water fish infested white sand beaches, plastic bottles, tourist, churches, poor Jamaicans street sellers trying to sell cheap souvenirs, rich foreign owned gift shops employing equally poor Jamaicans selling expensive beach towels, the Knutsford Express Coach service, amazing scenary, Chinese supermakets, more churches, sun sinking into the sea sceneries, potholes, Kingdom Halls of Jehovahs Witnesses, mansions, brick build huts, cochroaches, brightly coloured drinking bars, sunshine, goats, every possible model of Toyoto, Church of Pentecost, Palm trees, cheap Chinese clothes and household store, sunrises, mosquitos, Seven day adventis church, wasps, super luxery 4 x 4 jeeps, old bangers, gorgeous woman biting on the tongues so that they don’t show any type of emotion and avoiding any type of eye contact as they walk slowly past you, Top of the range Honda darkened glass SUV, the night echos of reggae music blasting thru the rural valley countryside with just three people actually attending the party in the local bar, very big loud loudspeakers, very very big loud speakers, the senior citizen rastaman, school uniform dressed children, bread fruit, the machete carrying freelance agricultural labourer, half built concrete mansions with flat concrete iron rod sticking out roofs, coconuts, roof top standing black plastiek round 100 gallon water tanks, loose dogs, petty crime, beggars, serious murderous crime, wind mills, more churches, tourist, beautiful beaches, more potholes, poverty, riches, quiteness, the ghettos, completely iron fenced off remote controlled gated villas with matching German shepherd gaurd dogs, noise, potwa, singing, friendly people, sunshine, yes lots and lots of clear blue sky sunshine.

  1. I do not know whether it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
    It seems like some of the written text on your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let
    me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve
    had this happen previously. Kudos

    1. Hallo Sem thank you for sharing this with me. I did start noticing this recently and could not seem to find a solution. In the end I completely deleted a number of posts and was able to rewrite and repost a number of them, but there were a few that I could not fix with just copy and pasting them from My Google doc base . I think I will need to complete rewrite them from scratch. WordPress is a never ending learning journey where you gain the most experience actually working with it, producing content and as Robert Kiwosaki says you ‘learn by your mistakes.
      Please keep me informed if you see any other discrepancies, typos or grammer errors on the site. You guys are my proof readers. I really need you all. Thanks

  2. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go
    back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to tell someone!

    1. I will repeat my front page slogan; I am and you & you are me so maybe by reading something about me it can help you to discover more of you. I hope you feel better now sharing this experience with us. Your experience provides a valuable lesson to us all in a number of ways, one being “Safety First!!” 😀
