  • It is the town center and is rather busy with people but the town in pretty ghetto so it was not that nice. It was the real montego bay and you see what the normal life is though. 
  • Sam Sharpe is an important part of Jamaica's rich history, so I'm really glad I went as part of my trip. 
  • was able to show my son one of the Jamaican heros... I showed pics on the net before our holiday was good to show he Sam Sharpe's statue....

  • Its helps me to locate many places
  • Central hub of downtown Montego Bay.
  • Ridiculous to drive in. So jam packed with cars and people.
  • Jesus is lord
