Welcome To Jamaica!

...it took a long long long long time...

sunny 30 °C


I finally got to Jamaica! The trip took a day longer than planned. Flight got cancelled... Spent the whole day on Brussels Airport because they took really long deciding whether the plane was gonna go or not. Which was weird because they knew that it was broken all along... Anyways... After flying for 12 hours I arrived at Montego Bay airport in Jamaica around 11:30 last night. It took forever to get through the douane. Had to take a 1,5 hour bus ride to Ocho Rios. On the way there I talked to a friendly guy my age. He was also into Reggae and making music so we had stuff to talk about!

Obviously I went to bed pretty late but got up at 7 again this morning when discoved that my room had a view over the sea! I couldn't go back to sleep mon! After a lovely breakfast I went to chill on da beach for a while while reading about Jamaica's intriguing history in the Lonely Planet. The weather is perfect!

In the afternoon I chilled with some Jamaican youth. I asked them loads of questions about Jamaica, escpecially Jamaican music. It was really cool to talk to people that actually know more about it than I do! I bought a cd from a guy, with more modern Reggae music, nice and new because I usually listen to Roots Reggae. It's all cool! I also got some ganja, soft sweet holy herb! I thought I really had to try that on this once-in-a-lifetime-experience trip! Well it's supherb!

I'm gonna get ready for dinner now. I'm hungry so I can't wait!

Peace & Unity
