A Taste Of Real Jamaica

Contest Entry #028 - A Taste Of Real Jamaica
It was our first trip to Jamaica. We had just flown in on Friday and got comfortable with our all-inclusive.
But while everything was perfect in our little world we wanted to venture out and see the "real" Jamaica.
We jumped in a cab with Bobby our personal guide and headed to St. Elizabeth Parish. Even though it was 2 hour ride it only seemed like a few minutes as viewing the bamboo fields, local students and schools, churches as we drove down the busy narrow roads made time pass quickly. Our guide was very informative and took great pride in telling his country's history.
As we approached the Westmoreland and St. Elizabeth parish line we pulled over to the right to a long line of cooking shacks. As soon as the van stopped there was instantly 4 sets of hands coming through the window showing off their goods!
Thankfully our guide jumped in and helped us negotiate with the locals to get the best deal. We got 5 pieces of fish for $1000 JA and a bag of bammy for 300 JA. I honestly have to say it was one of the best meals I had all week. And then we finished it off by sharing a piece of watermelon that we stopped and purchased from a local farmer.
Out of all the adventures we took in a week, this one experience gave us a true taste of "The Real Jamaica"
