I’m here in the Charlotte Airport and we’ve been delayed due to weather for four hours. A terrible storm went through the airport and I think this is only the second time I’ve been in an airport that stopped all traffic due to inclement weather. I learned that when the flashing light outside turns red all traffic must stop.
It is 1:22 PM and I’m at CLT. The two week vacation is now over and I’m heading back to California. As usual the trip went quickly but Asheville in particular has been a complete blur due to all the activities, kids running around and of course local craft beer.
We took a trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica on the 8th of this month. I won ‘Best in Class’ again at work and although we now have to pay for our ‘+1’ I decided it was worth a quick getaway.
It was more difficult this time to find interesting things to do. Yes, boozing at the swim up bar at the resort is always fun but if I’m going to travel to another country I certainly want to learn about its history and visit the historical sights. There isn’t too much to see in Montego Bay since at emancipation the former slaves burned most of the history down. I had already visited the Great House at Rose Hall and I really had to research for other things to do.
In early March we took a trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was the annual “Best in Class” trip for the top performers of the company and I was number one in 2016 for my division so was invited to go. I’d won two times in the past but the event was previously held in Cancún, Mexico. At first, I was a little disappointed that the event was switched to Jamaica because I’ve spent time in Mexico, speak Spanish and know where to go/what to do.
As planned I took a tour of the Rose Hall Great House in Montego Bay, Jamaica. This house is popular with tourists based on the legend of Annie Palmer the former proprietor who practiced voodoo, was a supposed witch and whose spirit is said to haunt the place. There was a book written about her in 1929 by Herbert G. de Lisser but apparently this book is fiction and as skeptic Benjamin Radford states, if the book is fiction, then there was no Annie Palmer and therefore can be no ghost.
