So I didn't really hace anything to do with the planning of this one.
Some friends put this together and had an open spot, so off we went to Jamaica
for a week. This was also during the ACC tournament and start of March
Madness, something we were confident Duke would blow through, and they did.
It would also be my first return to Jamaica since my family left in 1977.
Sangster Airport Montego
Not a lot of pictures to show from this trip, and I'm having a hard time
remembering a lot of what I did. On the shuttle mini-van drive in from the
airport we were already offered a big bag of pot. I remember we went out to the
clubs in Mo Bay that night and hit it pretty hard. Coming back to the hotel
probably around 2am, someone mentioned "There are British girls running around
naked by the pool." So while Hall went off to bed, I went to investigate. There
were two plump Brits running around with one off duty hotel worker hanging out,
so using poor judgement I kept drinking and didn't go to bed probably until
So I had promised Josh that I would go with him to Negril to visit his
sister and her "model" friends that were there for Spring Break as well. I had
to be up by 7am, then we took a ride across the island, with the driver being
this melodramatic lady that would swerve back and forth trying to avoid every
pot hole. I was green the whole time and probably 30 minutes in we had to pull
over so I could puke my brains out by the side of the road. By the time we got
to his sister's place all I could do was curl up in the fetal position and sleep
on their front porch for a few hours.

Somehow the hotel messed up and gave Hall and I one bed instead of two,
and weren't able to switch us. So yes, I had someone to sleep with all week.
Also our shower would just barely trickle out water. I believe the hotel was
undergoing remodeling and was recently bought out, and it showed.

Prelude to the big
kayaking debacle When we got into the kayaks, the guy said, "There is one
rule. Just don't go near the coral reefs." What seemed like perhaps one minute
after this picture, we would hear some commotion and would look back to see
Rassan- standing on top of the coral reef, having overturned his kayak. The
entire ocean- and this is where he ends up. So the whole resort was now looking
with our kayak renter yelling to no end, and Hall and I had to paddle to
retrieve the kayak which was on its way to Cuba.
One day everyone went on a booze cruise, but I skipped it as I didn't
want to risk getting sea sick. A cool pic from the cruise-
you see an Air Jamaica bird
We also spent a
few nights here
Out one night
remember this, but apparently we did some karaoke

A couple I had
made friends with, we had dinner at the Japanese themed place at our hotel I
The last night that we went out pretty late, right before grabbing a cab
I remember Hall was making tremendous noise about being hungry and he grabbed
some jerk chicken from a street vendor. I remember thinking- mmmmn, big mistake.
Turned out fine though.

We came back in through a connection in Atlanta and drug sniffing dogs
were everywhere hoping to bust someone.
