don't go into the hills without locals. there might be things there they wouldn't want you to see otherwise.

Apparently it has 4 times the murder rate of Haiti, but better music, prettier girls and excellent dope, which kind of makes up for the increased chance of becoming the kind of statistic we can flame each other over on this site.
I'm not really a proper reporter, due to the chronic lack of discipline, negligible attention span, and a certain juvenile difficulty taking serious things seriously.

Haven't been to Jamaica but the general rule is just like Hobo says: always go with locals if in doubt. Stay friendly.

But sounds like a blast; wish I was going with you.

I prepped myself by going to Jamica beach in Queens today, kinda overcast but I didn't need a gun. just because they're black don't mean I have to shoot 'em. but hell, even johnny cash got robbed down there
I am going out of my own goddamn accord and I'm not a she.

Avoid Kingston like the plague.

Jamaica ain't safe, but it is beautiful. Don't go down there with stars in your eyes. Be careful when taking taxis. Make sure it *is* a taxi. The good quality dope is about the best there is. The coastline at Negril is beautiful, but tourist traps abound. Watch out for roadblocks. Don't carry ganja in amounts that you can't immediately swallow while driving from town to town. Red Stripe is good for you. Eat curry goat and rice. The jerk chicken stand in Mo Bay was a great place for a cheap meal, last time I was there. Try the pepper jelly. Bring some home. Don't bring anything else home but pics and memories. DEA agents are thick as fleas and come on like college boys. Tell 'em to fuck off and die.

I spent a week in that hellhole....dogs literally eat other dogs.

I remember getting berated because I was a white guy carrying a black child through one particularly bad neighbourhood....hell,Kingston IS one big 'hood.

Fucking hot,fucking poor,and unforgiving.

The Wealthy live up in the hills(ie. white Jamaicans)....there are some awesome nightclubs up there....the exotic dancers are incredible.
