Jamaican means hard working, goal setting and rich culture. When I think of the Jamaican I see people with values, morals and a will to work. Setting goals for themselfs, but for their children to come.

Only in Jamaica do people get deported and upon their arrival home they get “BIGGED UP” because dem was de don a foreign.
Only in Jamaica do tourist get charged 50x the going rate from anything from a braid to a taxi ride.
Ony on a Jamaican minibus do little boys smell like grown men.
Only in Jamaica it is okay for the person driving you around to take a shot a “whites” at every stop made.
Only in Jamaica can a person ask you for spare change and after you give it to them his/her reply is ” Dats it you cheap ***”.
Only in Jamaica is every other person you meet an aspiring artist of some kind. “So what are you doing with your self” “Ya know me a jus try a ting”
Only in Jamaica can you find any type of food your heart desires at any given time of day.
Only in Jamaica can you pack five days worth of fun into a 24 hour period.
Only a Jamaican man thinks that it is okay to wear a mesh marina even though he has a huge Red Stripe belly.
Only a Jamaican woman thiks that it is fashionable to wear gold shorts with a mid-drift halter top and gold go-go boots(even though she has five kids and the stretch marks to prove it)!
(Talk about confidence)
Only at a restaurant in Jamaica can you attempt to order a meal and the person taking the order proceeds to say” Sorry we naw ave dat” until you get to the last thing on the menu.
All said you can not help but love this little island… Jamaican is beauty.. The attitude.. the people..the experience..the land.

Jamaica is home.
Jamaica is the comforter of my soul, the reason I wake every morning in cold England thinking,’One day one day’, the place where my parents grew and showed the me the values and moral of life, the place I can proudly say to my daughter,’look at where our ancestors lived’ the place my brothers and sisters and get together and relax. Not born in Jamaica, but Jamaica is home.
