On our trips to and from Sav and Negril we have always been interested in a sign along the highway for "Brick Oven Pizza" Those of you who know me would know that I would like to stop and see how their pizza is. Well Fran and I planned ahead to stop on the way home. We got off the road and drove about a mile but did not see any business of any kind. There was a young girl about 12 or 13 walking along the road so we stopped and asked her where the pizza parlor was but she did not know about any pizza parlor there but was quick to request some money for a soda and biscuit and when I told her I did not have money for a buscuit she said will do you have fifty dollars then I could have (that is about 65 cents US) and I told her I did not have any change. (this is typical for many many Jamaicans to ask for money - even at church) Many of them think all Americans are rich and they are not bashful about asking. We continued and came to a Guest House but there were no signs so we returned to the highway and got the phone number and called for directions. Well the directions actually returned us to the guest house but still there was no sign for pizza or eats of any kine. I got out and went to the registration desk and asked where the pizza parlor was. She said under the thatch. Now I will post some pictures and then continue with the experience.
This was our view while we dined and the Pizza turned out quite good and we were glad we stuck it out.
Neighborhood update: while walking one morning this past week I was early enough to meet Dawn and Audry the ladies I gave the Book of Mormon. I asked it they were still reading and they both said yes then Audrey said "It's just like the Bible and when you read it it really gets you going" as she was swinging her arm up. I told them again wat it was and she said " In my Sunday school I have asked and answered alot of questions and people will say where did you get that from" and she said she answers "Talk to Elder Andersen". Also met Elder Higgin the pentecostal minister and we are still trying to get he and his wife to come to our home for a visit. They are both reading the Book of Mormon and she is recuperating from major surgery so it may be a while yet.
For those of you in the COLD country rest assured we are still having our meals outside with a temperature in the low 80"s. Today we are going into Kingston to work in the office then tomorrow all the Sr couples are meeting at the mission home for our traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Jack & Fran
