Jamaica 1-Love

“Every dew-drop and every rain-drop had a whole heaven within it.”
–Henry Longfellow

Jamaica the beautiful of all beautiful, to me Jamaica is the most beautiful landscape human eyes will ever behold.

The most beautiful island under the Sun in the world is JAMAICA!
Jamaica came under Spanish rule upon the arrival of one Christopher Columbus in 1494.
Jamaica would later come under British rule in 1655, and in 1838 the British fully emancipated all Jamaican slaves.
On August 6th 1962 the people of Jamaica achieved their full independence from the United Kingdom.

Jamaica is abundant in it’s variety of terrestrial, aquatic and marine ecosystems are dry and wet limestone forests, rainforest, woodland, wetlands, caves, rivers, seagrass beds and coral reefs.
Insects and other invertebrates are abundant, including the world’s largest centipede, the Amazonian giant centipede;
Jamaica also has the world’s butterfly.

Jamaica’s ethnic make-up is 93% Black
4 1/2 % mixed
2 1/2 % other
Much of Jamaica’s Black population are of African descent; many Jamaicans can trace their origins back to West Africa.
Jamaica is also the product of two of the greatest men of the 20th century;
Marcus Garvey and the international musical superstar Bob Marley.

Finally, my favorite vacation spot in the world is Ocho Rios, Jamaica; the splendor of the island is utterly inexplicable. The place is tranquil and perfect for the writer who wishes to be free from the noise and hustle and chaos of city life. It is no surprise that Ian Fleming, the man who gave us the James Bond novels and who repeatedly used the island of Jamaica as the setting in his James Bond novels.
Ian Fleming was so in love with Jamaica that he moved there from the United Kingdom and never returned; he made his home in Jamaica.

One day soon, I too, look forward to making my home in Jamaica.
