Right now we are looking for alternative places with available rooms to have in our back pocket and watching the news closely.
I certainly do not want to put ourselves or our guests in danger. Right now everywhere says to avoid Kingston, but Negril is really only four hours from there. It's not very far! Technically it's on the other side of the island, but the island is small.
An article by the economist states "Mr Coke could escalate the conflict by calling on armed backers elsewhere in the country, like the Stone Crusher gang in Montego Bay, a tourist haven, to stage further attacks."
I just hope they hash it out FAST! Don't they know I'm getting married?!?

Hunt for Jamaican drug suspect to resume - CNN.com
"The president of Jamaica's Chamber of Commerce, Milton Samuda, said more businesses reopened Friday.
"I anticipate and hope that it will be fully back to normal by Monday," he said."
I hope he is right.

Just to let everyone know that most business places downtown Kingston was open on Friday. The courts and alot of banks and companies were open downtown. I drove downtown and was able to conduct business and had no problem. From Thursday the situation has been under control and I have gone to most areas in Kingston and Spanish Town without any problems at all and the tourist areas are definately not affected. It seems business as usual as if nothing happened. Everyone moved about freely except for in the troubled areas and I even drove pass one the barricades to get where I was going on Marcus Garvey Drive and no problem.
