Reggae

by j.heaven

I'm planning on spending a week in kingston in July. I'm a huge reggae fan and was wondering if any locals could point me in the right direction for live music? I want to hear roots music...and none of that 'dancehall' Any ideas?

There's a breathtaking view of Kingston and all its lights from the Red Hills that was luminous. The sight of the city makes you forget about the crowds, the heat and the craziness of this big city. The people.

Cricket at Sabina Park

by toonsarah

I took these two photos from the window of our car, so the quality isn’t great, but I was pleased to get them nevertheless. They, and this tip, are specially for my friend David, whose dream is to play cricket for England either here or at Lords – when he isn’t playing football for Aston Villa, that is ;)

Sabina Park was established in 1930, and the first test match was played here the same year. Sabina Park's most famous moment is when Garfield Sobers made a record breaking score of 365 not out in 1958, at the time the highest ever individual test score – a record that stood unbeaten for 36 years.

The stadium has recently undergone major renovations for the 2007ICC Cricket World Cup, including expansion of its capacity to 30,000 seats. The opening match of the World Cup between the West Indies and Pakistan was played here.

Jamaicans are enthusiastic cricket fans as are all West Indians, and I imagine the atmosphere here during a match is fantastic. In fact, one stand is known as the “Party Stand” and is the main area for those who enjoy a more raucous style of support for their team.

I’m not sure what I make of one story I read, about the members’ pavilion, which appears to be a throw-back to less politically correct times. Apparently no member is allowed to say a lady's name in the club, and if anyone slips up on this rule he must buy drinks for everyone there. This has its roots in a dispute, when a man mentioned the a name of a woman with whom he was having a liaison. Unfortunately for him, her husband was right behind him as he said it.

by hajin

In St. Thomas, there are some mineral springs that are relaxing and very different. For those expecting a more antiseptic experience, head to the hotel, but for those who want to meet some real Jamaicans, ask one of the guys to point you toward the springs and take a short walk to the springs.

Tuff Gong

by RudoElCojonudo

Most of the Bob Marley's LPs where produced by Tuff Gong. I think, that nowadays is one of his sons who owns the bussines. If you go there you'll be able to visit the shop, buy some good reggae records and see all the recording stuff. it could be a great experience if you really like music, and specially Reggae Music!!

Hellshire beach...where the...

by hajin

Hellshire beach...where the Jamaicans play on Sundays. The place is lined with fish shacks serving up some of the best roast, fried and stewed fish. There's always something to eat or drink anywhere you look. You can even ride a horse on the beach if you like, but the true fun comes from the people watching. By far, not the prettiest beach in Jamaica...those have been snagged by the resorts and Jamaicans are rarely allowed on those beaches reserved for tourists. Funny how it's their country, but they have no access to some of the most beautiful parts of it...
