The Sweets and More in Jamaica (video)

Why is travel to Jamaica so great? I think I have interviewed Dian Holland four or five times at the Los Angeles Travel and Adventure show in Los Angeles and it is always a good time. This interview is no different as we talk about Jamaica: it’s foods, flavors and fun. I am still trying to find a great Jamaican patty in Los Angeles.

Food Fantastic Jamaica

For the last several days, I have been enjoying the warm Caribbean Sea in Jamaica. The visit proved predictable in many ways. I heard lots of infectious reggae music, chatted with plenty of friendly Jamaicans, swilled fruity drinks in fluted glasses on sandy beaches, and was nipped by the occasional damned mosquito. However there was one big surprise. The food was great. Every meal impressed me. I never grumbled about the Jamaican...

Another Side of Jamaica, Kingston

For me, the Morgan Harbor Hotel was a place of legend – personal legend. My father was briefly stationed in Jamaica during his time with the US Navy, running drug patrols in the waters off Jamaica. He came home with keepsakes: a gold necklace, stories of the beautiful beachfront bar at Morgan Harbor, and a tattered picture book of Jamaica still found in most hotel rooms. I looked at that book a thousand times as a little girl. Perhaps...

Drinking the Water and Traveling

On my first trip to Jamaica, I religiously avoided drinking the water. Instead, I overdosed on caffeine with Coca Colas at every meal. Nothing fought the heat like an ice cold Coke, sometimes two. On the morning of my second day, as I met with my boss to debrief before our meetings, he casually asked “Do you always drink soda for breakfast?” “Oh no,” I replied, “It’s just because I’m not drinking the water. I don’t want to get sick.”...
