Popular 2014 Jamaican Bobsled Team Means Business in Sochi

The Jamaican bobsled team has been absent from the Winter Olympic Games for 12 years. They missed qualifying by only one place in 2006 for the Turin, Italy games and in 2010 for Vancouver, British Columbia. But, they're back!

Jamaica calls the bay "Glistening Waters", although you may hear people refer to it as the "Luminous Lagoon". Officially, it's Oyster Bay. It's been a long time since I've posted about Glistening Waters. This is one of my personal favorite spots on the island, so I think it's worth telling you...

Faith’s Pen Jamaica | Tasty Road Food in Saint Ann!

A Cultural (& Food) Landmark in Faith's Pen, Jamaica If you love "road food" as much as I do and are driving between the North Coast of Jamaica and Kingston or Spanish Town via Route A1, be sure to make a rest stop at the famous Faith's Pen near Mount Diablo, in the central mountain area of Saint Ann Parish.

There's no way you can miss it. You'll find a strip of food vendor stalls with...
