The Real Jamaica...The People

Contest Entry #071- The Real Jamaica...The People.
It is very hard to chose just one photo from Jamaica to post. But I think in all the years I have visited and all the resorts, attractions, country sides, cities and places I have been the above photo means the most to me.
I married a man who was born and raised in Jamaica. I fell in love with him as a person, the culture, the food, the music, you name it, I love it (maybe secretly in a past life I myself was Jamaican for how it has consumed me, lol)but most importantly I fell in love with his family.
When I visit Jamaica I stay at a resort as I still need some of the comforts of home but when I am not at the resort I am in the country of Drumilly St Ann's with my new family.
I spend hours there with my nephew who refuses to leave my side. He will spend the time running his hands through my hair because of the texture difference, asking a million and one questions about snow, Canada, and everything that is different.
He saves any money that he earns year round to try to give to me so that the next time I come to visit I can bring him a bag of "Pedigree" dog food for his dog.
All in all I love how accepting the people of Jamaica are regardless of race, colour or anything. They are people who will always stick together and once you are family you are always family.
They know how to slow down and enjoy life, love and happiness. In Jamaica everything really is IRIE and ONE LOVE really is a motto that they stand by.
I think people forget about reality when they are down in Jamaica because people there are so beautiful and loving. So for me, although I have thousands of great "scenery" shots, the one of my nephew is the realest most beautiful picture because without the people that are there Jamaica would not be what it is.
