Jamaica vibes

Jamaica is a vibrant and at times overwhelming time. If you find a nice spot overlooking the area, I would suggest to sit back, drink a Red Stripe, and watch the local and tourist interact. Maybe go all out and drink some local rum, why not! It may be too overwhelming to be approached by…

Fresh cut trees, trees with bulbs to decorate and plant in the yard after Christmas. Palm trees strung with lights down south.
