Easter Recap

This was probably the first Easter that I didn’t have any bun and cheese, not counting the two slices I had at my aunt’s house on Good Friday. Like most Kingstonians, the misses and I spent the Easter holidays outside of city limits. Ocho Rios was the destination of choice, it was a party weekend and all the hotels were fully booked. We stayed at Rooms Resorts and it never ceases to amaze me how inhospitable and indifferent hotel staff can be to their fellow countrymen. Haven’t they heard about the global recession? That aside, I got my annual single-dose of soca music at Beach Jouvert on Saturday. Unlike dancehall you don’t need to know the latest dance moves, wear the latest fashion nor be concerned with anything besides having fun. Machel Montano headlined and although his set was geared towards the ladies (thank god for his backup dancers) he gave an energizing and tireless performance. I was never big on bachannal but Jouvert delivered as it usually does. I spent the rest of the weekend mostly in bed, leaving the property only for food. This Easter I managed to strike the perfect balance between rest and recreation. Even now as I reminisce I’m gazing at the calendar looking for another opportunity to leave the city for a few days and head to the coast.

I'm not a fan of bun and cheese. I got a HTB Easter bun and a small tin of Tastee cheese, and I ended up throwing out more than half of the bun. Glad to know you enjoyed your weekend and Jouvert. As for the hotel's staff indifference to Jamaicans it's a common assault. Only a few, mostly the top end all inclusives treat us with respect.

I’m not big on "off the shelf" Easter bun either. As for the hotel staff, lets see how long they’ll continue to bite the hand that feeds them.
