     I woke up in the morning feeling extremely rejuvenated because I paid the bed bugs to massage my back while I slept.  I also felt very giddy at the fact that I was going to go see Discovery Bay in the northern cost of Jamaica today. I had to take public transportation, which is not very easy to find in Jamaica. I took the local bus for $2 but the bus ride was a good way to take in the feel of Jamaica. The bus took me all the way to Columbus Park and I was amazed at all the history behind this place. I could just smell it.
  This was the place that Christopher Columbus is rumored to have first docked in 1494. Columbus originally named it Puerto Seco, which stands for Dry Harbor. The majority of the estimated 2700 people that live here are of African descent which meant that I could find myself a decent African meal around here. I went to a restaurant called the Coconut Tree and bought myself a delicacy from the magical city of Zoo Baba, Niger.

  <---- YUM YUM!

    After my incredible lunch, I went to go see the Grotto Caves which are filled with old relics and paintings of the native Taino Arawak people that used to live here.  My heart was beating faster than ever because history makes my blood pressure go to dangerous levels. If history could be a meal, then I would order a history burger with some history fries and a diet history soda. I hitch hiked myself a ride on the back of a segway but the kind gentleman made me pay $20 for gas. On my way up to my shoe closet i remembered that segways don't need gas, they run on AA batteries. I felt slightly frustrated at this but thought of my historical trips made everything better. When I got back to my hostel I noticed something very strange. There was nobody anywhere in sight and I could hear a distant screaming. I did not think much of it because it could just be a monkey howling outside in the jungle. Another thing I noticed was that this hostel is in a very peculiar place and particularly dangerous to get to because it is up a mountain. I don't mind however because there's a sign that says "Safe". The sign wouldn't lie would it? Sometime that night I also heard loud bangs but I doubt anything can go wrong in Jamaica because its so amazingly historical and educational and paradise-like.
