Mi Belong Yah

This week in boredom prevention

Well, I was so bored that I boarded a plane and flew to Jamaica...
Not entirely true, but the sea breeze and endless sunshine certainly deters my boredom. After being here only four days I have eaten dinner at a member of parliaments house, visited a horse farm with over 200 horses (where I saw a foal that was born merely hours before we arrived), encountered many friendly, albeit stray dogs, shot myself into the sea from a three story high water slide, made myself look like a fool jumping around on water trampolines, marveled at a seaside campfire, and don't forget the number of red stripes I've cracked. Never a dull moment.

Yesterday, we spent the day at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. Although it's a bit of a tourist trap and they serve hamburgers instead of traditional Jamaican food like saltfish, it was an entertaining trip nonetheless. After climbing to the top of the three story restaurant you come across a dark tunnel. Under normal circumstances I probably would steer clear of a dark tunnel that leads to the sea, but after a few margaritas I decided it was the best idea ever. And let me tell you, it was. Aside from the blinding salt water that burns your nose it was exhilarating. Hilarity ensued as the water trampolines and giant slides out in the sea combined with the rum in my blood stream lead to antics best left undocumented.

I hear we have one of these Margaritavilles in Niagara Falls but I certainly don't want to enter the dark tunnel that shoots me out into Niagara Falls.

As my Grandma likes to say- Jamaica, mi belong yah.
Next week in boredom prevention- my attempt to set up camp and never leave this beautiful island.


  1. I am so jealous! I'm glad you are having so much fun.
    member of parliaments house? I can't wait to hear this story.

  2. ahhh Jenna I am REALLY wishing you'd packed my in your suitcase like we'd discussed, it sounds like you're having so much fun! I can't wait to hear more stories like this one when you're back. Stay safe!

  3. Sounds like your having a great time! I'm jealous too, I want to go to Jamaica so bad and your probably going to be so tanned when you get back. Have fun!

  4. Jamaica!? That's the most proactive boredom prevention method to date. I hope the rest of your trip is safe and fun.
