Springfield, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica
The picturesque Moravian church on the hill
Springfield is a quaint but resourceful little district on the outskirt(north/northeast) of the town of Newmarket in St. Elizabeth.
Typical of most rural disctricts in Jamaica, their main source of income is from agriculture, primarily farming.
Thanks to my friends, Aunt Nenae and Keisha, I was able to learn quite a few things about this little community.
I snapped the little cabbage farm on my way back. The farmer (not in photo) was very nice. He gleefully allowed me to take the picture. He even gave me a few of the ready ones.
The moravian church on the hill is a view to behold, just awesome! I certainly did not do it much justice with this picture. I learned that the inside is even more impressive!
And that's the school, the all-age (primary) school! I went in and scanned around, very clean and inviting. The kids were equally great.
I tell you, there is no place to me like the rural parts, that's where I get- and is reminded of, the real Jamaica.
I'll be roving so do continue to stay in touch, I'll be sharing another small community with you soon.
P.S. If you are familiar with the area, please feel free to comment on it below.
