Friday night

It’s Friday!

It’s nearly time to leave work!

And as I still retain some British habits, I am sitting at my desk listening to ‘Party Classics’ on Virgin Radio over the web – gets me in the mood to leave here.

So this evening’s plan is to head to Port Royal for fish. Port Royal is one of those amazing places completely unlike anywhere else in Jamaica. You go, sit at tables on the pavement and get served incredibly good fish. mmmmm. Perfect way to chill out with the girls on a Friday night. There aren’t many places in Ja where you sit on outside on the roadside to eat and watch the world go by.

Port Royal is also the starting place for trips to Lime Cay (see my photo), a pretty little island outside the Kingston Harbour. On a Sunday, it is packed with Kingstonians partying, but in the week, it can be your own private island. Well, Port Royal used to be the place to get a boat over – you’d head down there and find a friendly looking fisherman who would take you over and you’d hope he came back for you later.

Now things have gone upmarket – there are proper boats – with safety vests and everything – which you can get over. Lots more reliable… but not as much fun!

Anyway, fish – here I come!
