Easter in Jamaica

Driving north from Kingston, up Stony Hill Road, one encounters a church every hundred yards or so in some places – almost as frequently as one passes a shack sized pub blaring music and serving rum and warm Red Stripe. In Jamaica, where religion is one of many national obsessions, Easter is not a day but week long observance,and a journey past all these houses of worship is a trip through the whole range of singing,sights and smells that is Jamaican Christianity.
