As of now I'll be showcasing snippets of Jamaican life for my Friday post. Most of my novels are set in Jamaica, so I thought it would be a good idea to share some of what I encounter each day. I'm sure you'll see scenes here that you're not likely to see anywhere else in the world. Guaranteed! Watch this space and have fun with me on the streets of Kingston or wherever else I might roam.
|Why park on the street when you can deprive the pedestrians of the sidewalk?|
|Why should a perfectly good sidewalk go to waste, when we can set up a vending area?|
|Jamaica might be a third world country, but we have a gazillion car marts. See the laid back security-type guy? Bet you've never seen one of those before.|
|Clock in Half-Way-Tree - Popular landmark between down town Kingston and upper St. Andrew. Delicate operation here, balancing between the truck on the left and the snoozer's head on the right.|
|Meet the vampire-in-training who lives at my house. He's asleep now, but really should be feeding to keep his strength up.|
|Photographer's perch where I took most of the shots. The young vamp captured his own image with my phone.|
Enjoy your weekend and meet me back here on Monday for some thoughts on writing and what-not.
