  • TOPIC OF THE WEEK - What items do you bring back from Jamaica?

    What do you bring back with you? It is for yourself or for others. Is it mostly souvenirs or food/coffee/drink? Arts and crafts?

    We bring back coffee mostly for others.., but this timme we brought back high mountain coffee for ourselves. We bring back rum creme for us & our friends. Also for ourselves, lots of jerk seasonings, & curry powder. Also a little, Ting. We always send ourselves a postcard with lots of things listed on it to remember... from the sound of the ice cart going to stock the bar, the smell of the bread baking, the sights & sounds of new adventures, and other precious moments listed on our postcard of memories...

      Only one thing every time - jerk sauce from 3 Dives, we ask Lydie ahead of time and he has it ready for us the day we leave...usually nicely taped up in rum bottles! I had to bring it for others this last time so somehow got 4 of them in my bag, carefully...they all made it.

      Sometimes coffee, that's for others.

      For me I have brought back books (A Year More or Less in Jamaica is my favorite so far, got it at the airport).

      I WANT to bring back a nice carving for my garden fence but haven't found the right one yet...

                    sometimes I bring back coffee, but for me it is spice and sauces, & limes also. Rum Cream of course even though I can get it here, I like the Wray & Nephew! Tia Maria is so much cheaper. KETCHUP, good thing I am going twice, I dont have to lug another 10 LB gallon jug this time. I always take at least a box of packets of Cock Soup it is cheap and really good. Hot Scotch Bonnet sauce, and jerk chicken dipping souce as well as Walkers Wood jerk marinade. And then the only place I can find HELL HOT pepper concentrate, there is a warning on the back of the bottle that says: Warning! Parental guidance advised, this hot sauce is not radioactive though it could be. It's function is to heat up anything one might consider boring...That prettymuch sums it up, and for the regular hot sauce, I bring back Grace hot pepper table sauce.

                      I was very busy collecting things I might put in a acrap book.. receipts from marley museum, record labels from Tuff Gong and the viny rejects, Yes a ting label and red stripe label, recipts from 9 mile..and just snapping tons of photso on the digital and the 35mm. I don't think I bought anything for myself..Danny got lots of marley tee shirts, marley tapestry's, rasta colored thread bracelets, two carvings of rastas, a carved walking stick with a story behind it, taped music. I brought bitters for someone and a small amount of rum and coffe for ourselves and others..I also got some great wooden toys in PA, but we played with them so much they were broken when we left. I did not become familiar with the Jamaican palate..a goal for next time.. I will be back for a list of what to get next time. I do think some of the items mentioned can be had in NYC. I have seen ting. I have to say the best thing I brought back was the lasting feeling I have inside when I think of our journey..its a spiritual kind of connection and a desire to go back and rekindle it.
