    Well I'll tell you, we had an amazing time. I'll bore you with a few thoughts and a little background. My wife, the amazing Ms. Laura, and I love visiting Jamaica. I went to Negril for the 1st time in the late 80's, after my discharge from the Marine Corps, and I realized that this was someplace special. Great vibes, great fun and an amazing experience for a 22 year old kid. Then life got in the way. Raised an amazing son, got him through college, and it was time to reconnect with Jamrock. Reconnection started when I brought Ms. Laura, for the first time to Jamaica to the Riu in Negril. We did the all-inclusive for a week with off-campus trips sprinkled in. To my luck Ms. Laura loved it, loved the off campus trips better, and the game was on. So Negril was our destination for quite a few years and we did the beach, we did the cliffs, we did other places in Westmoreland and then we decided to go to the other end of the Island. Portland.

    It was our first time flying into Kingston and we were stoked. Customs/immigration was a breeze. We didn't have a driver prearranged so we went with a JUTA rep at the gate and we hired a driver for a pre-fix rate ($150 US) to Portland. The driver ignored the directions we gave him to the property so we made the trip along the coastal route from Kingston to San San beach. It was an hour longer, even after a long day of air travel,but it was incredible. The views, the smells, the music (our driver had some awesome jams) made it a very enjoyable trip.

    We made it to our place at dusk and Verona had brown stew chicken ready for us which was incredible. When we were done with dinner we finished our icey Red Stripes and then we crashed. After 15 hours of travel (air/ground) and a great meal,we were done. I'll update the rest of our trip shortly..
