Round Jamaica - New Feature

Round JamaicaOliver Wright and Jermain Evans, from Go-Jamaica and The Gleaner Company. Over the next foreseeable future, well, 10 days or so, we will be blogging our way around the tourist (and hopefully not so tourist) attractions of this beautiful Caribbean island.

A hi-octane melange of hi-lights await you…boats, dolphins and sharks….bars, scotch-bonnet ‘n’ jerk…rafting, falls, farms and rastafari…and somewhere to crash at the end of each day.

We’ll also be featuring interviews with the fascinating people we meet along the way.

So, welcome. Lean forward. Armchair travel from the tips of your fingers to the edge of your toes - and then get out around Jamaica and enjoy!

Stepping through Stepney with Robert Lalah
Stepping through Stepney with Robert Lalah"Boss, mi a tell you mi can sing you know. Do mek mi just sing one more song fi you." The man saying these words was standing in front of me for the past five minutes, begging me to give him a chance to record an album. Why? I really don't know. He just came out of nowhere and started singing. "By the rivers of Babylon, where we sat down," he belted the tune with all his might while snapping his fingers. "And there we wepts when we remembers Zion."
