14Apr2015 - Day 4 - Western Caribbean Cruise
Day 4 10:30AM - got to Falmouth, Jamaica: the Caribbean's Georgian-style gem . Once a major port in the 18th and 19th centuries, this Jamaican town grew incredibly wealthy off of sugar production. Ships laden with sugar and rum would leave for Britain daily, just as others would arrive with slaves. It was a n age of prosperity and sophistication, marked by the splendid Georgian-style "Great Houses" still perfectly intact today. On the other hand, it was an economy entirely dependent on the slave trade - an age of inhumanity overshadowed by great fortune. All that came to an end with the Emancipation in 1840 and today, it's as if time stands still in colonial Falmouth.
