We were in some of the most beautiful areas... naturally it was all in the Blue Mountain range areas... ended up on dead end roads which locals told us "nutten nuh down dey so ... a dead end man, yu fi turn back" lol! Somehow we got into Moores Town. I'll have to dig up the pictures but that day mi sey man, Jamaica a really God bless country... the nature scenery was out of the world. If there is a heaven, mi feel sey it was right in that area. I could do that trip again.. we were lost but I was navigating and making notes.
    one of my favourite trips is the drive from kingston up through newcastle and over the hill down into buff bay.

Anyone has ever been to the mineral spa in Rockfort? Is it still in operation? Rockfort itself has a very interesting history. We have many historical places of interest, curious whether the govt are preserving some of these historical places.

    i havent seen anything taino related in jamaica - i'll put that on my list. thanks, Sandi
