PERSONAL TOUCH: You can say this for Pamela Bridgewater, you can't come between her and her groovy reggae music. "I love Beres Hammond, Jimmy Cliff, Rita Marley, Tarrus Riley, Marcia Griffiths; Bob Marley goes on all my road trips; Carlene Davis, Judy Mowatt and Shaggy," reveals the outgoing US Ambassador to Jamaica, whose tenure has come to a close after nearly four years. Among the high points of time well-spent here on The Rock? Witnessing vast positive developments in relations between locals and Americans. "I have seen improvements in consular affairs, including an Ask The Embassy column in the newspaper," Bridgewater notes. "The [visa] application process is much easier and friendlier now and we are a good neighbour in the [Liguanea] community."
