Still somewhat jetlagged I went to downtown Kingston to buy fresh fruit and vegetables (trying to support the small people and not just shop in supermarkets).
I went via uptown Kingston where I waited in long but organised lines to change my money into Jamaican dollars, and to buy a local sim card.
Downtown Kingston has more in common with Bamenda in Cameroon than it is probably aware of. Bustle, music and street vendors of all kinds. I wanted to take a picture of the one-legged man who weaved in and out of traffic on crutches hoping for donations to his cause, but it seemed inappropriate.
Got some great deals on naseberries, watermelons, calaloo, and plantains. Yum! Yum!
