If you’ve been to Jamaica virtually every year of your life since you were only a twinkle, you can be expected to have really got to know the real country, not just the one the tourists see.
That’s Charlotte (left) and Harriet Hammond’s scenario, they’ve been there, done that, and got all the T-shirts.
However last year, they got just a little more than they bargained for…. Yes, they’ve done Carnival (the Ocho Rios one), yes they’ve done the reggae roast, but they hadn’t been to the festival BBQ on Dr No beach. So off they went as is the custom on the back of a flatback Toyota. Great fun all round, and lots of friends too. What hadn’t been shared with them was that the beach party traditionally ends with a paint fight. Wooooo.
So this is how they came back … yellow and red emulsion from head to foot …..
