I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Beaches Boscobel Resort and Golf Club last week for a live broadcast.  On our downtime we had the opportunity to book excursions through Island Routes, a reservation desk is located in the lobby of Beaches Boscobel.  Lony and I decided we were going to do the 4x4 Dunn's River Safari and it turned out to be a wonderful choice.

A Zebra painted Land Rover pulled up to the resort with 8 seats in the back to pick us up and take us on our adventure.  From the hotel we proceeded into the mountains of Ocho Rios.

Our tour guide told us about the wonderful plant life in the mountains. As we made our way up the mountain we were told about

how people live in Jamaica.  Some of the homes located on the sides of the mountains are made out of plywood.

Very small houses and they are a true definition of shacks.  Most of these communities are very poor and they live off the land and what nature gives them.  Most of these communities do not have running water and they rely on rainfall to provide the water for their homes.  If it doesn't rain they don't have water.

Jamaica is a beautiful country.  I was in awe of the beauty.

Tomorrow I will tell you more about What I Learned From My Trip to Jamaica.  It involves plants!  I was amazed!
