From Peter to the Black River

I meet a german guy at Rebel Salute who recomended Belmont (the birth place of Peter Tosh) to me.
Having the same timetable we decided to travel together for our last couple days on Jamaica...

our guesthouse run be a Ras called Bigger

Belmont is a very tiny, laid back village near Bluefields on the South Coast.
Very nice people there, you nearly know everyone on the street in 2days :)

Being the most revolutionary member of The Wailers, Peter Toshs death seems to be linked to other political motivated incidents in music buisness (John Lennon assassin, shooting at Bob Marley shortly before a political concert, Buju Bantons actual trial)
The story of his mysterious dead is captured in the movie Stepping Razor - RedX.
When I asked his cousin, if the murder could be political motivated, he replied "could be!"...

We decided to spent the rest of the day on the famous Black River where you should be able to see some impressive reptiles

instead of taking the big tourist boats we asked a local fisherman to carry us
