What did you do this summer?

I went to Mo Bay!
Words I never thought I would say.
That rhymes.

Montego Bay is very beautiful by the sea, and very third world from the bus. The people are beautiful and sad. The music is wonderful and descriptive of dreams, not reality. The lovely old historic church we saw was in terrible disrepair, but Margaritaville was pristine and air conditioned. Our tour guide called the potholes "free massage" and the speed bumps "sleeping policemen". The resorts provide work for the locals, but there were still plenty of people offering drugs on the streets. We didn't buy any.

Returning to the ship for cool drinks and lunch, followed by a nap and a great workout was time well spent. Dinner was exquisitely served:
Rack of lamb
Wilted Spinach with bacon and Portabellas
Seafood Variety Newburg Style
Dessert: Tiramisu and Bitter & Blanc (Chocolate and Vanilla)

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galations 5:1
