Home Sweet Home

Heading back to Montego Bay from Kingston today.  It's always nice to be in Kingston and hang out with other CUSO-VSO volunteers and friends, but I'm looking forward to my own place and the cool breezes in Montego Bay.

Since I'm heading home, here are some pictures of my place:

This is the living room - you can see out the doors the small balcony and the greenery. On the left you can see the edge of the spiral staircase which takes you to the loft bedroom upstairs.

This is the view looking away from the french doors.  The door goes out to a central walkway which isn't used too often.

This is the kitchen - a "one-bum" kitchen as we used to say.  But it's just me so that is fine.  Of course it is particularly cluttered on the day I took this shot.

My room.  There are lots of windows but I usually keep them closed since the path outside is well used. It also helps keep the room cool for sleeping.

The upstairs loft. You can see that although there are 2 single beds, it is now currently my yoga studio, which is very nice. I've been quite diligent about coming up here to do some sun salutations each day.

So now you have had the grand tour of Villa 1A.  Not so big, but certainly fits my needs.  You're welcome anytime!


  1. Thanks - it works for me :)

  2. Looks great! I'm hoping to come visit at some point - glad you have some room!

  3. JULIA! AMAZING! Glad to see the yoga mat set up. Yoga plus open breeze = some pretty peaceful moments.

    Miss you!

  4. PS: Bitterblue comes out in May.... :D Yay!

  5. Glad y'all like it. Can't wait to have you over.
    Erika - while you're waiting, read the Guy Gavriel Kay books.
