place in it and to decide if i like it. I've had some fun interactions
with a couple of Rasta taxi drivers. One from the SF Bay Area!! He was so
happy and lots of fun.
In Oracabessa where I spent last night, the Rasta man in the mini-market had
the most beautiful heart. he just radiated love. Was a treat just to meet
Definitely not a place to bring a little one. Most of the people are
friendly and kind; and it's a very poor country and it feels like it. Has
a chaotic energy to me, which I expect to get used to soon.
I am here in port Antonio at the eastern end of the island. After arriving here, a man immediately targeted me as easy prey I think. He had some knockoff reggae CD's for me and took me to a good veggie restaurant and hung around until I was done eating. He had no interest in talking to me. I think he was hoping to find some way to turn me into $$.
I made no attempt to talk and checked my guidebook to get my bearings.
Then when I was done, I thanked him for guiding me and said I was going to
go explore the town on my own. He got up, walked away, and was much less
friendly than before. glad I know how to set boundaries to take care of
myself. No miss nice! :) Lunch was quite good and I will go back. I'd
never have found it without his help.
The beautiful part about being here is that even with all the activity and
people, everything is flowing perfectly and easily. Whatever I want is
easily and immediately available. It's all good!
Now I'm asking for sun. The cold Florida weather is affecting the weather
