My alarm goes off at 6:30am on Thursday, December 14th, but I am already awake. In approximately 5 hours, I would be in Montego Bay, Jamaica! One Marta trip and 30 minutes of being lost on the Hartsfield-Jackson airport later, I am ready to board!

Upon arrival in Jamaica, it was a rainy day, but the sun was still shining. I was amazed at the scenery outside of the airport. There were so many people leaving and coming to the airport.

We quickly noticed that there were a lot of cars in which the steering wheel was on the left because they drive on the left side of the street as opposed to our right. As we waited, I just soaked in the environment around me.

Twenty minutes later, Willie and Miller, our drivers around the city drove us to the hotel. On the way there, I was amazed at how green everything was. There were a lot of fruit trees! It was just beautiful.

Once checked in at the hotel, we took off to explore. We strolled along the beach near the hotel. There was also a little island that you could walk across the water to that had coconut trees. The rain had cleared, and the ocean water was so blue and glistening. To end the day, a beautiful rainbow appeared, and it was time to prepare for the next day.
