And so we did in 1993. The place was amazingly like Curaçao; sure, it's larger and higher, but the main difference is that vegetation is so much richer and hides all rubbish and trash. Also, there are much stronger anti-honky feelings in Jamaica, and it took us some time to get used to that. It may have to do with poverty, much worse than in Curaçao at the time, but there must be more reasons; the island just looks less civilized. Apart from Calypso (like it) and Reggae (don't), I still don't know a thing about Jamaica culture. The older colonial architecture looks more interesting than the really modern style, just like in Curaçao. Even more churches all over the place than we have here now. Have a look for yourself—I was pretty much in form.
