Take Me Home: Ashley in Jamaica

GM Maurice Ashley in Jamaica.

Jamaica Nice for GM Ashley

Reggae star King Yellowman did a song called “Jamaica Nice” in which he was telling a story about immigrants reminiscing about the beauty of Jamaica. The singer crooned the lyrics, “Take me home… country road… to the place… I belong… in Jamaica… that’s where I’m from… take me home… country road.”

GM Maurice Ashley has been visiting Jamaica on a regular basis and once again stepped onto his homeland as part of his six-nation Caribbean tour. ChessBase ran Ashley’s narrative on his visit home.
