Take Me Home: 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.
Nice potrait GM. Ashley, very nice!
Here is the song I was referring to… King Yellowman!!
Maurice had tremendous fun “back ah yard”! His countrymen appreciated his presence and we are hoping for many more visits in the near future.
I’m trying to get to Jamdown real soon. I was just a stone’s throw away recently, but we will see what the new year brings.
Ashley other tours in the Caribbean…
