Jamaica, Egypt


Believe it or not, there is a huge scene in Egypt for urban-style and it does not simply involve the upper classes with the cash to do so. One of the most hardcore spots in Egypt is this hang-out called Jamica. Yes, it is supposed to be Jamaica. In Arabic Jamaica is pronounced “Ja Mee ka” rather than the English “Ja May ca,” thus the spelling above.

What amazes me is the cultural power of a small Island in the Caribbean. This in no way denigrates the country, I have the utmost respect for Jamaica. However, considering the population is a mere 2.8 million people, it just goes to show that they obviously know what’s up.

Stay tuned for more shots from around the world of places you never thought of.

    part of our huge influence comes from the fact that there are more jamaicans living abroad in the diaspora than there are at home….so multiply that 2.8 million once….then again for second generation jamaicans and u really see the influence šŸ™‚
