from jamaica, with love

I went, I saw, I ate, I drank and I fell in love.

With Jamaica, that is.

I'm still fumbling with my words; unable to give justice to all that I encountered. A total departure--a much-needed escape to pure relaxation. Away from the cold, away from the stress, away from the mundane routines. It was the kind of trip that will stay with me for a long time and thus, inevitably, the kind of a trip that was particularly painful to say goodbye to. So difficult in fact, that I extended my stay; incapable of turning my back on my life of leisure in paradise.

So as I longingly stare off into space (while snow dramatically flurries outside my window), dreaming about being back on the beaches of Jamaica, I'll leave you with a few keywords and snapshots.

Red Snapper, Coconuts, Spiny Lobster Tails, Cava, Lemongrass, New Friends, Herb Gardens, Cilantro, Jamaican Basil, Pineapple, Star Fruit, Red Stripe, Scotch Bonnet Peppers, Fresh Ginger, Coco Bread, Curried Goat, Smoked Marlin, Callaloo, Green Plantains, Blue Mountain Coffee, Rum, Craw Fish, Sweet Potatoes, The Rockhouse, Cliffs,Vodka and Soda Water with Lime and a splash of Pineapple Juice, Jerk Chicken, Saltwater, Sand like Silk, Love, and Sunshine. A whole lotta Love and Sunshine.
