    Im currently In the harbour of Montego Bay, Jamaica. Staring at the shorelines. We are stuck at anchor tonight, the port has been closed 2 days because of Hurricane Gustaf.
    We are going in first thing in the morning, but they got hit pretty hard, so I dont know what its gonna be like.

    For those that dont know, I have been gone for a month on a Central America/Carribean trip with the HMCS St. Johns. We return on Sept 29th. Still a ways away yet, but it has gone by fast so far.

    We stopped in Key West, Florida for 2 days and it was probably the best place I have visited to date. I could spend the rest of my life there without any hesitation.
    We then stopped at Colon, Panama. It was quite the shit hole (no pun intended :lol:) The only good part was that we got to go to a resort and spend the day for 35$ including bus ride. It was a paradise on an island. We took an hour and a half to get to a warf and then they took us on a gypsy boat ride for 15 minutes to the island. It was quite the experience. It was like the movie, the beach.

    Next stop is Vera Cruz, Mexico and Koren is flying down to spend 5 days with me there. Im pretty pumped about that!


    Anyways, thats what Ive been up to... just thought I would share.

    cooper, yes I have taken quite a few pics. I cant upload them now because im on dial-up on the ship. Ill post some when I get to the hotel in vera cruz.

    Kim, Yes we go out if we are in port and arent on duty that day. We cant tonight because we are at anchor in the harbour. Tomorrow we will be out in full force.

    Shellie, we will be in Vera cruz in approx 2 weeks.

    Is there someone named Shawn Luciano on your ship? I have seen these places on his facebook over the last few days. Went to high school with him.

    Sounds like a really difficult tour. Makes Afghanistan sound like a walk in the park.

    He probably tried to get on the wagon but was too drunk. Fell and broke his hip or something...whatever happens to old people when they fall.
