Jamaica: Island in the Sun


Where does one begin with Jamaica?  With the sunshine, waving palm trees, and north shore resorts?  With the ladies balancing baskets on their heads through the open air markets?  With the pirates who swaggered up and down the streets of old Port Royal in the 1600’s?   I spent a couple of years in Jamaica as a young college student, collecting music, folklore, and personal experiences.  I was never able to convince my Jamaican friends that, just because I had a $30 Chevy, it didn’t mean that I was rich.  I don’t suppose I could have convinced them, either, that, even though they may not have had a penny, their island made them rich as kings.
