Driving in Jamaica

you always know it when you get to portland

A few of the fans on the facebook site have decided driving is the ultimate adventure.

I love the road signs that say "CLIFF" and show a car plummeting over the edge.

Ya mon.

The first time I was ever in Jamaica, I took a taxi after sunset on a rainy-rainy day from Mo-Bay to Negril. The rain had washed the mudcrabs out of their homes.

My taxi mon was doing 50,000 miles an hour, on the wrong side of the road, in the pitch dark, dodging mud crabs on the "highway". (Long before the A1 road makeover.)

The first time I took the public bus from Negril to Sav to Kingston to Pt. Antonio, there were a number of times that I thought I might actually die. But then I thought, Nah. These Jamaicans know what they're doing.

We were winding up and down steep, narrow mountain roads into and out of Kingston with rain water pouring down. The roads were like driving in rivers. Hark, what's that I see in the boughs of a tree on the low side of this sheer cliff? Oh my God. It's a car. Rusted out and flipped over and held by the branches this tree. It was at that moment that I thought, maybe these Jamaicans are actually crazy.

The first time I rented a car was in Negril. Naturally, the gas gauge was well below zero. I vaguely knew the direction of the gas station, but not much more. I drove country-way through Sav to get back to Mo-Bay. That day put hair on my chest.

The first time my husband drove in Jamaica, he was hanging me - the passenger side of the car - so far over the side of the road that a number of times only 3 of 4 of our tires were touching.

Now we're old pros.

Between Mo-Bay and Ochi, I turned my air conditioner off in my rental car and rolled down my windows to enjoy the cool misty rain. When it stopped raining, and the sun came blazing back, I turned my air conditioner on and... I believe it caught fire. Smoke poured into the car and we didn't even blink. I said to my husband, "Dere is no more air conditioning today." No problem mon.

A wasp flew in the window of our car on my last trip and stung me. About a million times. Also, it made my daughter cry. But we didn't mash up the car, not once. :)

Mi love mi island Jamaica.
