Jamaica Motorbike Escape: Rolling Elsewhere

Making a rapid exit from a fcked situation in Little Bay to Negril, Westmoreland Parish, Jamaica (excerpts) on the back of a motorbike (classic Jamco), sometimes with one other passenger besides ace driver, saying hello to village folks along they way.

Blending in like a local in Jamaica hair tucked up in knit tam, obligatory futbol shirt (Juventus, Italy) and absolutely required shades.
 
It must’ve worked as I appeared in a slightly different incarnation of this outfit in the lead story on the Jamaican national news on the day Westmoreland Parish legalized cannabis.
 
Little Bay, circa 2013/4?

Jamaican Ganja Field

High up a mountaintop of ancient uplifted coral, unaccompanied by bodyguards, escalades or a single Marley (unlike “reincarnated” snoop), I found a happy place– surrounded by thousands of little ladies. I squeezed the buds to savour the moment and smells of mangos and papayas, limes and skunks. 

Note audio recorder in hand. My wanders are different now. I still wonder. Snapped with a single-use disposable camera
