The story that I’m about to tell you is probably irrelevant, but I know your probably wondering what’s the weird bamboo thing in the picture. While I was in Jamaica the people were trying to sell me everything in the sun. They had so much to offer and we had so little time to buy. There was a man selling carved bamboo cups and I was tempted to buy one, but I wanted other souvenirs instead. He walked off and left one cup and never came back. When we were about to leave, I noticed the bamboo cup sitting without an owner. I asked around to see who it belonged to, but no one stepped up to the plate. (Side Note: I know you’re probably wondering whether I took the cup or not???) I made the executive decision to NOT leave the cup, so I brought it back to Atlanta. Before we exited the island, we stopped to have some drinks, and I ordered a Red Stripe Beer. My uncle was already sipping on one, so I joined the club. I enjoyed my Jamaican beer and I got a free cup out of the equation.
FYI: Red Stripe Beer
FOOD TIP: Red Stripe is a Jamaican style lager beer.
