Jamaican Vacation Anyone?

I've never been anywhere so acoustically rich. From the second myself and Charlotte stepped off the plane in Montego Bay until we were up in the air again Jamaica was never quiet. The insects, the animals, the people even the land itself never stopped making sound. This is actually a bit of an archival post since these recordings were originally made in October of 2010 when Charlotte and Myself managed to catch a cheap flight out of rainy Vancouver to sunny Jamaica. We had a really great time exploring the island and especially the warm waters around it. So, if youre in the mood to get away have a listen to any of the recordings below and get a slice of Jamaican life.. c'mon mon, take a break!
