Emancipation Park

On Sunday, we went to church, which was nice.  The church was huge - it had to be 100 feet high at least.  There was a drummer, a pianist, a guy on trumpet, and a choir.  Father had a very challenging sermon and the whole experience was very nice.  We were in there for around 2 hours, though, but the kids did pretty well.

After church, we went on a little drive to New Kingston, which is the business district.  There we saw Emancipation Park, which had the follow statute to commemorate the emancipation of Jamaica's 300,000 slaves in the 1830s.
