Trashed Hope Gardens



This is a bamboo tree at Hope Gardens. It is so beautiful there but there is so much garbage. Even with garbage bins, people still throw their trash everywhere. And the bibs are all overturned. I took the kids yesterday and spent much of the time running after them trying to stop them from picking up trash. It is such a shame as it is an oasis in the city accessible to everyone.

“Jamaican scientist seeks to bring back ganja weed”


This is a nice story from Agence France Presse. Three young reporters visited Jamaica last month to write a story about the Reggae Girlz, and also did this story. I met up with them briefly and gave them tips about how to navigate Kingston and where to take shots. Enjoy!
