"Sometimes you just have to get up off of that lounge chair and go explore." Great advice from the Travel Channel's Andrew Zimmern about experiencing wonderful Jamaican food! Some of my favorites are here - like chicken foot soup, curry goat, and tripe & beans. And some great places to try on your travels, like Aunt Merle's at Hellshire Beach for fresh fish, Cherry's One-Stop in Faith Pen, and exotic fruits from the stands in Bog Walk Gorge. Now I am HUNGRY! Enjoy... and go eat some Jamaican food! Yeah man. :yes: Part 1 Jamaican Food on "Bizarre Foods" featured on TRAVEL Part 2 Jamaican...

Everything "Cris" in Kingston Published on Saturday, June 12, 2010 By Bevan Springer NEW YORK, USA -- Following my whirlwind visit to Kingston, Jamaica last weekend - the corporate and cultural capital of the Western Caribbean - travelers can rest assured that everything is "cool and cris." The recent civil unrest and the government's security response in the west Kingston neighborhood of Tivoli Gardens caused great concern among travel partners in the marketplace, so I was keen to see the situation firsthand and can verify that Jamaica's vibes are indeed still nice, and notwithstanding low...

Jamaican leader plots a great escape

Posted by on Jun 3, 2010 in Blog, Jamaica News, Kingston Jamaica, St. Andrew Jamaica | 0 comments

IMHO, the ONLY way PM Bruce Golding could possibly repair his shattered reputation would be for him to keep his word to “target criminal gangs wherever they exist, irrespective of their political alliances..." If he could dispense with the "politricks" once and for all & clean up Jamaica's escalating crime problem, people may actually consider voting for him again. If he's serious about his political future, this is the only thing that can save him (just my opinion). I watch with interest... and HOPE FOR PEACE in Jamaica. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ June 3, 2010 Jamaican leader plots a great escape The...
