Snapshots of Kingston, Jamaica

Friday, July 22, 2011

Sharing more scenes from Kingston & St. Andrew. Enjoy your visit to the other side of Jamaica and have a great weekend!

St. William Grant Park - Downtown, Kingston
Coronation Market - Downtown, Kingston. Most Jamaicans say 'Curry-Nation Market'. Yep, taking illegal verbal shortcuts is a national pastime.
 Market hazards - See the guy on the right with the shopping cart?  It's possible to get a foot run over by one of these (or a hand cart) if you're not careful. Nimbleness is necessary for market trips.  In case you're wondering, a handcart is a 4 wheeled contraption that kinda looks like a raft with a steering wheel attached. I'll capture an image on my next market visit. 

Abandoned Courthouse in Half-Way-Tree.

It took an entire week for the other set to come in (see last week's picture), but the young vamp is now fang-complete. I could show you what he looks like after a 'bloody' meal, but then I'd have to stake him for wasting good Ketchup.

  4. Thanks for stopping in, guys. He keeps asking me if Count Dracula is real, so who knows?

    The market can be bewildering.

  5. I love the photos, JL. How many blogs do you have girl? And you've got books too. I didn't know that. Will have to grab one or two. :o))

    When you have a moment, pop over and read my RFW contribution. I'd like to know what you think.

    Have a fab weekend.

  6. I've already been to visit you. :) I'm finding that I like African love stories.

    Currently, I'm writing three blogs. It's getting to the point where editing/writing is becoming a challenge.

    Thanks for visiting.

  11. Hi Joy,
    Cool pictures of Jamaica, thanks for sharing them! I would love to go to the "Curry-Nation Market" with all that fresh produce. Our local farmer's markets are so tiny in comparison.

    What a cute little Vampire you have there. :)

    Deniz, my son wouldn't agree with you. He went with me and kept complaining about the combined smells.

    No, he doesn't and by the sound of the name, I wouldn't let him either. :)
