Detour

So taking a detour from my writing routine of one post per day, i had to come and share this interesting experience on the way home from work. So on with the story: I just jumped into a taxi (and a Jamaican taxi is like a bus that carries only 4-5 complete strangers and the taxi can be any type of car but mainly Toyota’s) and took a seat behind the driver who was busy eyeing a girl as she was sitting down in the passenger seat. Now its not anything new but in this case the taxi man’s eye
