Jamaica was once a British colony and so customs such as "Tea" in the late afternoon are still part of life here.
Again the pictures speak for themselves.

Moving on to Friday's experience I would like to point out that unlike my experience in Honduras where I go on a mission trip the Jamaica experience has put me more in the role of an observer, not as directly involved with the local people as I am in Honduras, though I did have some fine conversations with some Jamaicans.
Friday took us to the north coast of Jamaica (Kingston is on the south coast). We stopped for some Jamiacan Jerk (a way of preparing fire-grilled meat, not to be confused with American Beef Jerky) which we took to the residence of the Oratorian Fathers who staff several parishes in that region. We also stopped to visit beautiful Somerset Falls. Again, let the pictures below speak for themselves.
