Weekend of Fun in the Sun…

The last few days have been nothing short of amazing. Jamaica is the only country I know that do community projects on labour day. And I certainly had my day jam packed with heavy labour.. I may have to take up painting as my trade with all the experience I have received. Labour day is a great way to connect with the community and essentially build stronger communities. But the fun didn’t stop there. I had a chance to visit a beach in Runaway Bay, St. Ann. The drive from Kingston to Port Antonio and then to St. Ann was nothing short of amazing. Talk about a country that takes your breath away! There is no doubt this country is beautiful. 

There were a few things that had me laughing:

1. “Excuse me, how far is Runaway Bay from here?”

“Far”

We stared at the couple waiting for more information.

“Far, far” the woman responded again with a piting look on her face.

“Far far” the man next to her reiterated.

“Oh, thanks”

I looked at my friend wondering how did that response answer our question. The stop light changed and we tried to calculate how far is considered “far far”. It turns out 30 mins drive is the appropriate amount of time that is referred to as “far, far”.

The second situation happened at the beach. I saw a woman walking along the beach wearing socks. I have no idea what the logic behind that one was… 

This blog is brief because I have my first math test to write and I need to get back to practising..
