Jamaica - part 6

The coast was beautiful, and near Savannah-La-Mar we passed a rusted old ship that had run aground. The island itself between the towns was green, green, green. Actually much of western Jamaica is tropical wetland or "morass", possessing a similar feeling to the Florida Everglades, except with mountains. Otherwise the ecosystems are similar. Our first stop was Black River, both a city and a river; in a matter of minutes we went from bus to boat to mangrove swamp with crocodiles.
