Today's date is 3 Mars 2016.
When we landed in Montego Bay, we went straight to the mansion and fell asleep.
The journey was rough but worth it. The villa we live in, that also have everything you need as a tourist, and a little bit more costs around 140 thousand SEK and the flight tickets cost 46 thousand SEK. As we wrote yesterday, we flew with British airways and recommend the airlines to travelers.
We planned this trip about a week ago, I know, very spontaneous huh?
Anyways, we are looking forward to living here in 14 days. Jamaica is a beautiful island with a lot of traditions.
When we woke up we ate some food that our chef had made to us, it was tasty and consisted jerk chicken and rice. The Jamaican food and the Swedish food has a lot of similarities, such as potatoes,rice, chicken, beef etc.
We find the Jamaican culture very interesting, me and my friends actually did explore them today. There is street art everywhere you go, dancing people and Jamaica is well known for their music. It is very different for us, that comes from Sweden, to visit a part of the paradise of rich cultures, also known as the Carribean Carnival, that is a term used for a number of cultural events.
Jamaican people are very genuine based on their religion, Rastafari. People are open minded, and their passion they have for their land and culture is amazing.
In Sweden, there is no such thing as ‘’dance is a part of our daily life’’ am I right?
But here, on this island, there is. Dancing comes in any form, such as handsclaps and swaying hips.
We went to a club, and learned some of the dance moves, I can tell you, that it was an experience for a tourist from Sweden, because they use dancing to communicate with each others.
What I want to say to you, readers are that Jamaica is nothing as Sweden, here they attach value to their culture, the people have more passion for their island, and the bonds between the people is warm and loving.
