Amit and I went to Montego Bay, Jamaica from
June 18-20 and had 3 days of "No Problem" fun! I've known Amit since my
Peopletogo days where he was an independent IT contractor for the company.
We stayed at the
Breezes at the hip strip of Montego Bay and the resort provided free
hotel transfer from the airport. As usual, the moment we got our
all-inclusive hand tags, I went to the bar. I asked the bar tender
Andrea, "what is the best that you can give me?" Her response was,
"Get Laid!" I jokingly told her that I just got in and will consider
her proposal later that night and she suddenly realized the connotation of
her answer to my question.
Amit and I explored the beach area and
Doctor's Cave then strolled for some Jamaican souvenir at the hip strip.
Jamaican's by nature were happy people and I was able to relate this nature
to their usual response of "No Problem!" For the Jamaican's,
everything was not a problem. Haggling for souvenir was not a problem
and getting some assistance was not a problem as well. As a matter of
fact, Amit and I had two tourist police ladies who escorted us along the
main boulevard. I guess, they realized I was so drunk and they thought
of some future assistance!
When we got back to the hotel, Juanita (from
Washington, DC), Priscilla (from New York) and I had some cognac fun.
They saw me getting some cognac and they asked me if it was part of the
package. They have been there for 2 days and were drinking the local
stuff and they had no idea that cognac was served free. I told them
that Andrea (the bar tender) just took good care of me.
Mary and Ricky of Virginia gave Amit and I
the pleasure of being invited to their wedding as witnesses. However,
their wedding was on July 20th which was our date of departure back to
It was all fun with "no problems" in Jamaica
