Jamaica is a beautiful island, but the disparity between rich and poor is so great. People with money (usually white) live in enclaves with gates and walls. They do business in their own arenas. The jamaicans live in apparent poverty. Bob Marley, who died at 36 of melanoma that started on his toe, was half white (german) and contracted "the white man's disease." His music revolutionized the island and its people, and ultimately the world.
Sting Rays just love people!!
The big draw on Grand Caymans is Sting Ray City. Over the years, fisherman cleaned their fish on the sand bar near the reef. The rays would come and eat the leftovers. They stayed there and now boats come and feed them, and get the tourists to cavort among them. It is, to me, a sad sight to see a wild animal trained like a dog. The rays scurry from boat to boat as the food (squid) arrives. I stayed on the boat so as not to support such exploitation. See below.
Life is a blank canvas on which we paint our impressions, experiences, wisdom, compassion, and laughter.
