    The first time I went to Jamaica it was an adjustment getting used to their relaxed atmosphere, but once I did I loved it! It felt like a real vacation. But I think my parents will have a hard time, they are always EARLY for everything!!!!

      So true - it does feel so much more like a vacation when you can lounge and not be rushed! I have memories of going on vacation when my brother and I were much younger, but my brother actually fell asleep with his head on the table because it took so long for our dinner to arrive at a restaurant in St. Marteen, lol. Definitely different than eating at restaurants here in Chicago when the wait staff is trying to turn the tables around as quickly as they can.

          LOL! I am from NY but my relatives are Jamaican, and we always joke about "CPT" carribean people time because the whole carribean is on island time! So we would tell them 5:00 EST/4:30 CPT... The phrase is "me soon come" meaning I will get there when I get there and thats perfectly okay down there, but my neurotic NY guests will have a hard time coping with this! Something about NY/Long Island makes people psycho and impatient if they have to wait, they want everything right here and right now. If you are saying the Mexicans are the same that will be hilarious! Even going to the midwest or California with NY-ers is an adjustment so it will be interesting to see how they cope with Mexico time, lol!!!
