Jamaican Me Crazy

So among a list of things we had planned to do this past semester, going to this Jamaican eatery we (Sade) found was definitely one of them. In fact, I think we planned this about a year ago now... very telling of our lives. As the semester finally came to an end and we're about to go our separate ways for the summer, it was only right we do one last hoorah before our next encounter probably 2+ months from now. We finally made it to Negril, world.


To give you a little back story, it was nearly sweltering hot, Lola is coming all the way from forestry Virginia, Sade is moving mountains from a county in Maryland you may very well have never heard of...it's practically a mission honestly. We both planned to meet at the same time but of course that never happens. Lo actually lands in the vicinity first, also never happens, and the walk to Negril itself is enough to make you want to make an 180 back to air conditioned safety and go home. I may be exaggerating..or not because it really was melt your skin hot lol. In any case, we both did eventually make it to the Mom and Pop style diner which really brought us back to the vibes of home. They really got the tropical feel down right, effortless and lazy, truth be told. Negril is highly recommended for the authentic, melt-in-your-mouth, Carib flare. The prices are decent and the food is fresh. We both enjoyed our meals of cocoa bread and veggie patties, as well as Chicken curry and rice&peas.

We played our usual game of catch up because oddly enough, even though it is a bit odd to imagine, but we haven't seen each other in some months and definitely haven't sat down and really talked face-to-face in even longer (we would've seen each other at Broccoli Fest as planned, but timing conflicts really have a way of messing up shit). But of course we always pick up where we left off, as if never interrupted-- An aspect of our relationship that is always cherished. This time around the major topics of the day were our love lives, spiked Dominican blow outs, abusive relationships, and our Summer '16 hair schedules *cue Drake*

Before we re-entered the station the scenery was just too tempting to pass us by. Hope you enjoy these flicks as much as we did. Sade back at it again with the spot on photography!
