less than 32 hours until departure ...

and I haven't started to pack yet. Wrapping up work at the office, checking out the weather forcast (low to mid 90s and wet this coming week in Morant Bay). It has been interesting reading in the Jamaica Observer how much impact American presidential politics can have on our island neighbor. Ronald Reagan may have had trouble with his geography (confusing the Caribbean with the Mediterranean) but he found common ground the the Seaga government.

Now George Herbert Bush is planning to celebrate his 80th birthday by jumping out of an airplane again (3rd time) and I am planning my first trip to the Caribbean. Not something I even thought was a possibility while growing up in the Midwest. M
