    Falmouth, Jamaica

    August 28, 2014 in Jamaica ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Yesterday we docked at Falmouth Jamaica, I've been to Jamaica before but never to Falmouth, so I decided to have a look.
    To be honest there's not much to see, the port area is specially built for RCCL cruise ships and is just shops, outside the port area the town is ramshackle and very run down.
    I wore my Jamaican uniform, that being a Bob Marley T-shirt and to be honest I was very surprised at the amount of people who shouted "hey Bob Marley " and wanted to high five, or fist bump me.
    I suppose they where either very friendly, or just thought I was a knob to be a white guy with a Bob Marley T-shirt walking around on my own, probably the latter more than the former, lol. Must admit I did feel safe walking on my own but you do get pestered the further you go into town, as the police/security presence gets less the further you go, so less police means more beggars I suppose.
    Glad I went but wouldn't bother again.
