The People the Culture of Jamaica

The entertainment crew gearing up for the afternoon games!
Every night they had a show~~this one has the funniest story! Guys in drag it was sooo funny we laughed til we cried, you see the one there in the red? She (ahem) came down and engulfed my poor husbands face into her was hilarious it happened so fast I didn't get a picture of it but I remember how red his face was, yep matched the color of "her" top..he he
The amazing talent of these people, and boy could they dance and move things that should be illegal!
Yes, even Michael Jackson stopped in for the occasion (lol)
Macarena she was so beautiful and kind! She is actually from the Dominican!
What is he doing?
Your kidding me right!?
Don't you wish you could have your drinks served liked this;)
Or maybe like this (lol)
Steel drum band~I believe there were 6 bars this was our favorite with the best bartenders, see the name of it?

The entertainment crew is there to do just that! Entertain! They make people get up and do things you would never imagine! Yes I got suckered in one time! It was really fun though! They work an average of 16 to 18 hours a day! Approximately 6 hours of that is spent dancing, and practicing the rest is spent entertaining the guests! They all had bodies to die for! Maybe I should be dancing instead of being here blogging~~~what a thought!
Not sure what will be up tomorrow perhaps the Dolphin Cove pics;)

HI French aka Lisa!
Thank you for your kind words about my Gram, I truly appreciate it! As for you, my dear- I'm jealous! :-) Your pics look great! I bet you had a fabulous trip and wish you were still there! The pics of the shows remind me of the shows at Excellence in Punta Cana, where we went last year around this time! They are so much fun, aren't they? Talented, too!
God bless, my friend! Take care,

Hi French, the pictures are wonderful. We went to a small island off the coast of Puerto Rico called Vieques. It is not comercalized They only have 4 square miles with people, out of 54 square miles. No trafic lights no fast food and no Walmart. We stoped beside a bar and watched them dance. Oh they were so good.Kathy

I can see why you continue to vacation there. It's so beautiful! I'm sure the food was just as wonderful as the surroundings. Did you happen to take any pictures of that? LOL Twin
