Kingston is a place of fascinating beauty and startling poverty. Located on one of the biggest (and greyest) harbours in the world and ringed by low green hills, this city of over a million likes to get its ganja from the farm to the table. It was founded by the survivors of a quake that sunk a pirate town. What should you expect? The ghettos of Kingston gave us ska, reggae, hip hop, dancehall, and Rastafarianism. With over 500 murders a year for the last 20 years, the city's nickname of """"Killsome"""" is well earned. Kingston was the inspiration for Marley's Concrete Jungle.
