So how did you celebrate Independence Day?
There were quite a few spots here in London where Jamaica's Independence Day was being celebrated and you don't need me to tell you that wherever there are Jamaicans there is bound to be a good time.
There were Jamaican flags and colours everywhere; Jamaican music blaring from almost every corner as the whole of London, it seemed, transformed into Jamaica Central.
Walking around in a Jamaican top, as usual guarantees a whole lot of attention and with the whole Independence celebrations mixed with Usain Bolt's remarkable 100m victory the night before, it seemed as if everyone wanted to talk, take a picture and just say something to me.
Not sure we could ever live the life of a celebrity; it's hard work trying to satisfy everyone who wants to spend time with you or take pictures.
Although it was obvious that it was a result of the bright yellow shirt with 'Jamaica' on the front, it did feel exciting at first, but after the 10th or so request it became a bit tiresome.
We were surprised at just how many persons actually knew that Jamaica was celebrating 50 years of Independence. Maybe it has something to do with the extensive coverage in media all across the world of Usain Bolt winning the 100m Olympic gold medal on the eve of his nation's Independence celebration, but it seemed that everyone knew.
From the cab driver at Liverpool Street, to several persons in a mall and a random Brazilian fan, Jamaica was on everyone's lips.
"Hey thank you," said the guy wearing the Brazilian football top.
"I wear a yellow shirt and every girl wants to take a picture with me because they think I am from your country," he laughed.
No such luck for us, but oh well, tomorrow is another day.
Hope everyone enjoyed their Independence Day activities. It wasn't great for us inside the London Olympic Stadium with Brigitte Foster-Hylton's 100m hurdle disaster and Melaine Walker's surprise elimination from the 400m hurdles, but let's hope that this is our last 'bad' day at the Olympics.
