Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

What A Drama!

The last couple of months have been difficult to say the least, perhaps the hardest that I have seen since moving back to Jamaica.

The current state of emergency and the Dudus extradition have only helped deepen the recession currently underway, as all commercial activity crawled to a halt on days when the violence deepened or curfews were enforced.

I have also noted that quite a few friends of mine are making sounds about migrating.

I thought that this article by Douglas Orane was particularly good, and begins to point a way forward for the average Jamaican:

MONTEGO BAY, St James - A Clarendon-born man, Alvin Phee, who has lived in London, England for the past 10 years was on Tuesday sentenced to a total of 15 months in prison and fined $465,000 on drug charges.

After pleading guilty to six counts last week, Alvin Phee, who was held with 35.25 lbs of ganja in his bags at the Sangster International Airport and then passed out 1.25 lbs of cocaine after he was taken to the Cornwall Regional Hospital, could spend up to a year in jail if he fails to pay the fines.

The Croydon, London resident had pleaded guilty to possession, dealing and taking steps to export ganja and cocaine.
