{Negril Favorites} New Friends

It isn't a cliche...Jamaicans really, truly are honestly friendly, genuine, down-to-earth people. I felt so comfortable, so at home there that, if I thought I could hawk baskets on the beach for a living, I'd do it! Sure, while we walked the beach, we were asked a few times if we were interested in some other local plant life, but a simple no, smile and nod were always enough of an answer. But mind you, every person we met was a talker! Whoa buddy! And nothing is fast. Just be mellow, expect things to not happen quickly, give time for a friendly conversation everywhere you go and you'll be irie in no time at all! Here are some of the friends we made along the way...
