The concentration of many dissimilar cultures and lifestyles within a relatively small space gives birth to a culture of unique contrasts. Lacking my prevailing norm, the pressure to conform in this type of community is minimal, and what was once difference becomes a part of a shared, multi-cultural experience. The residents of Jamaica are constantly swept up in this dynamic medley of languages, customs and cuisines.
