  1. I guess I’ll take question #1 – Jamaica gained it’s independance in 1962.
    Happy Independence Day to Jamaica!

  2. Great idea Marcia and a nice way to spotlight Jamaica. Kingston is the capital of Jamaica – and now I will go to the other social media stuff req\’d.

  3. This would be great to go back to Jamaica. This is where myself and my husband got married 21 years ago at Couples Resort. I do remember having to get our marriage license at the capital which is Kingston. So, the answer to Question #4 is …Kingston

  4. I liked you on Facebook under the user name “Desiree Nogarede Blache”. (my middle, maiden and last name). P.S. I go by my middle name. I can’t wait to win!!! What hotel/resort is the for also?
