AI5P operatting as AI5P/6Y5.

Jamaica, the third largest island in the Caribbean, is about 144 miles long and 50 miles wide at its widest point. The cloud-capped peaks of the Blue Mountains rise to over 7000 feet. Discovered by Columbus in 1494, the island was colonized by Spain but seized the British in 1655. Awarded to Britain by the Treaty of Madrid in 1670.

Jamaica became one of her most valuable colonies with cultivation of sugarcane, cocoa and coffee. Early history under the English recorded pirates and buccaneersattacking the Spanish Main from Port Royal and the establishment of the greatest slave market in the world (slavery was formaly abolished in 1838). Jamaica became a British Crown Colony in 1866 and an independent nation in 1962.

Special thanks o the staff of the Richmond Hill Inn for making my visit so enjoyable.
