Summer in Jamaica

I don't know how many people are still following the blog as we only post about once every month, but we are still here. Summer has hit Jamaica with a bang in the past couple of weeks. This is in contrast to the winter when summer is here, but it is a milder form of summer. It has finally stopped cooling off at night. A couple of nights ago it was 87 when we went to bed at 10:30 and 83 when we woke up at 6 the next day. This morning it was 85 at 7 AM. When we leave, we are moving to a place where the July lows average 48. I think Carrie will invest in some sweaters.

We are nearing the end so are starting to think about the past two years. People are asking what we think of Jamaica and the Peace Corps. There were very difficult times and very good times. Overall it was definitely worth it and the experience was great. Another common question is would you recommend this for other people. I would say that I would recommend this for some people. It just isn't right for everyone. All in all, it has been a very good experience and hopefully we can take some of our remaining time here to spend quality time with the friends we have made.
