Jamaica Independence - We danced the night away
Jamaica50 Entry #19 -We danced the night away
At that time, I lived in Norman Gardens in eastern Kingston
. A single girl, friends with two newly wed policemen and their brides.
We decided to have a house party, it was a huge success, best party I've ever attended!
The Union Jack had been lowered for the last time and the green, black and gold became our flag. We were proud of that fact! We danced until we were exhausted!
For some unknown reason, over the years, the thing that sticks in my mind is how the following afternoon, all three of us girls tried to get the green tiles on the living room floor clean and shining once more, to no avail. We'd danced the colour off the tiles, and they were now a pale green...lol!
