Jamaica frets over slowdown in returning islanders

In this March 14, 2013 photo, Jasmine Pottinger, a 73-year-old retired nurse, tends to her terraced backyard garden at her home in Mandeville, central Jamaica. Now retired in her Jamaican parish of birth, she worked four decades in London, a city where she never felt entirely accepted. For years, Jamaica has assisted nationals living abroad to undertake a sort of reverse migration back to the island, but the numbers of Jamaica's so-called "returning residents", who moved to cities like London, New York or Toronto as young adults and dreamt that one day they would return to their sunny island, is steadily dwindling.
