Kyoko and I, while on a trip to visit family in the U.S.A., to take a short trip to Jamaica. My mother came along with us and our two month old baby, Grace. Since I was a young boy, I always wanted to visit Jamaica because of its strong culture, interesting people, delicious Blue Mountain coffee, and famous music.

We stayed at a relaxing hotel, where we could swim, kayak, play tennis, eat delicious food, and enjoy fun entertainment every day. We were also happy to simply enjoy the warm sun, as we were visiting during winter.

We explored a small part of the western side of the island. We were able to see some sugarcane fields, lively market places, quiet beaches, and mountains. And, of course, we drank delicious coffee and listened to a lot of great reggae music.

It was a very nice holiday.
