ДЕНЬГИ НЕ МОГУТ КУПИТЬ ЖИЗНЬ У Боба Марли было 12 детей, и как минимум пятеро из них пошли по стопам отца и занимаются музыкой. Например, Зигги Марли – известный исполнитель в стиле регги. А на фото – мужская линия семейства Марли: Боб и его 7 сыновей, а во главе – император Эфиопии Хайле Селасси, он же растаманский бог Джа. Эта красивая картинка нарисована на внутренней стене забора вокруг дома Боба Марли в Кингстоне. ⠀ Когда Бобу Марли было 32 года, у него обнаружили злокачественную меланому на большом пальце ноги, которая образовалась в результате футбольной травмы. Всё можно было решить ампутацией, но Марли отказался. Он боялся потерять способность танцевать на сцене и играть в футбол. Но основным аргументом против операции была вера. Растафари считают, что тело должно оставаться целым. "Раста не приемлет ампутации. Я не допускаю, чтобы человека разбирали на запчасти," – так Марли ответил врачам. ⠀ Боб Марли продолжал петь и ездить по миру в концертами. Но рак давал о себе знать. Из-за лучевой терапии выпадали дреды, и приходилось надевать шапку. На одном из концертов Марли потерял сознание, и турне отменили. Рак поразил лёгкие и мозг. ⠀ Несмотря на лечение, певец скончался в больнице в Майами в 1981 году в возрасте 36 лет. Последние слова, которые он сказал сыну, были: Money can't buy life – Деньги не могут купить жизнь. ⠀ Многие ошибочно считают, что Боб Марли умер от наркотиков и ассоциируют его с образом рок-звезды. Нет, это не так. Марли был пацифистом и чрезвычайно верующим человеком, пропагандировал любовь и мир, не изменял своим принципам и верованиям, любил свою большую семью, свой народ и своих поклонников. ⠀ Ещё один большой миф – это песня Don't worry, be happy. Это не Марли, и даже голос не его. Песню исполняет Бобби Макферрин, и вышла она в 1988 году – через 7 лет после смерти Марли. ☝☝☝ Больше фото из дома Марли в столице Ямайки Кингстоне и музыка Боба и The Wailers – в сторис.

There are well trained horses and attentive guides who will ensure you enjoy the horse ride in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea.

9) Mystic Luminous Lagoon: This a glistening water in a glowing lagoon on the north coast of Jamaica, the fresh water of Martha Brae River meets the salts water ocean which forms the amazing glistering water. The water is filled with phosphorous which allows it to illuminate so brightly when disturbed. When you dip your foot or hand I the water, it lights up around you.

Words (and pictures) can't describe how amazing of an experience this was. I rang in the New Year in the #LuminousLagoon in Jamaica. There are only 4 spots in the world with bioluminescent water like this. When the water is disturbed, it lights up blue! It's one of the coolest (and scariest) things I've ever done. Scary only because you're swimming at night so you can't see anything and the mud on the ground feels like a large marshmallow. But man was it SO cool. I sadly didn't bring the right camera equipment with me so we didn't end up getting any photos or videos that were useable but I found this one online and I felt like it was the perfect one to show you what it looks like in real life! If you ever get the chance, make sure to add this to your to-do list as its one of the cooler things I've ever seen or done! #travelCTB #bioluminescence
