I can thank to Joni for a postcard from Jamaica, a new country in my collection. And guess what, it's a waterfall card! Thanks A LOT, Joni ;)
Jamaica is a  a Caribbean country, comprising the third-largest island of the Greater Antilles.  The indigenous people, the Taíno, called it Xaymaca, meaning the "Land of Wood and Water" or the "Land of Springs". Jamaica came under the rule of Great Britain in the 17th century, achieving full independence on  6 August 1962. Jamaica is still, though, a Commonwealth realm with Elizabeth II as Queen of Jamaica and head of state
Jamaica has the population of 2.8 million, which makes it the third most populous Anglophone country in the Americas (after the United States and Canada). Country's both capital and largest city is Kingston, located  on the southeastern coast of the island.

The stamp commemorates the 50th anniversary of the birth of Bob Marley. I think a quote by Bob Marley would be appropriate, wouldn't it? "None but ourselves can free our minds." Bob Marley.
