Hi Folks! Its Me, Markospoon, Your Favorite Negril Storyteller in Stunning 3D! Cool Huh?

I Write Colorful Articles About a Dimension of Negril the Most Tourists Rarely See.

This has led me to create this blog in order to save and display my stories along with all of my 3D photos just for you my many tourist fans. I'm doing it in cooperation with the 2 author / webmasters of the NEGRIL JAMAICA TOURIST VIDIA, a free, 1500 page exhaustive visual encyclopedia - directory website of Negril.

My articles are about my actual experiences doing various goofy things at various interesting places all over Negril. So I sometimes utilize this reference website's photos, videos and maps here to visually portray some of the tourist enterprises, activities and attractions that I mention that are in this beautiful Jamaican tourist town.

Through my articles and the visuals that I've posted here you will quickly learn why I and so many other tourists love this little town so much.

The following is an endless loop slide show of the 3D photos which I shot when I was down in Negril in December 2010. Enjoy Mon!

This kind of a no glasses 3D slide show has now become possible because of start3d.com's exciting new 3D technology for blogs and websites. With it, all of my 3D photos may be viewed here or in thumbnails in my album on their website or in a larger size on my page on the Negril Jamaica Tourist Vidia.

And should you go there, you can also view a twin slide show of my 3D photos in the much deeper displaying anaglyph format (which does require the 3D glasses to be focused and viewed). In that format, my 3D photos can be displayed in full screen mode to show you an even more fascinating 3D view of each of these scenes.

Hurricanes while in Jamaica

I was there and lived to write about it.

The skies were a weird color and most places shut down.

It was funny driving with a little rain and light green,orange and purple colored clouds/skies at 1:00 PM.

I called Negril from home once during Ivan, I did get through and it sounded like a movie. You could hear the winds through the phone, alot of yellin and babies crying.

I told my friend to "HOLD ON!!"

She was in a Markospoon - which hurricane were you there for?

Rastagirl777-It was the one that came directly after the first. Like back to back. Dennis and Emily i think.

I was so glad the week before i left that one had just passed. Ahhh, smooth sailing now.

I did not even know there was a hurricane coming.
I woke up saw dark clouds and thought "oh, a little rain this morning"

I walked to the front desk to check out, and one of the staff ask me how was i going to get home? I thought she was joking so i said "backstroke" all the way. Why do you ask? She said the airport was closed.

Huh? What? So i called the airlines and they confirmed it.

Funny, nobody on the island that i was partying with even mentioned that a hurricane was coming.

Air J said they were not able to book a seat for me for like 3-4 days away.They said i could go to Sangsters when it opened and try to fight hundreds of people for a seat on stand-by i guess.

Hmmm, maybe a thousand people are stuck like me. No thanks.
So i called my boss at work and explained the situation.
They were pissed off.
You see, i always stretch my time as far as it can go. I was expected back at work the morning after i fly home.

So, the manager/owner of the hotel said
"no problem, you come here every 6 months. Pay us when you get back."

Sweet, 6 more days in paradise.
I had enough cash for food and beers!!

It was kind of strange. No sun for a couple of days. People still driving around, getting on with their lives.
Man i love Jamaica!

There was a quiet somber to Negril that week.
I good time to meditate and self reflect.ement house, so all was well.

Missblue, sounds like you were right there with me.:-)
The colors, the sounds. The shear power.
It comes from somewhere.

I sometimes feel that it is a way of the almighty talking to us.

He/she says "i'm here, do you understand that?

Feel me, Watch me, watch me grow!
Its nature at its best (in a way)

I get a feeling of like tunnel vision, but all over my body.

Living here on the shores of Lake Michigan, we get some strong winds. The lake front is lined with these giant boulders and the crashing is something to behold.
