You have heard a lot from me. Yep, I wrote scores of pages here, providing you with 'down to earth', real-life information, stories and even pictures of Jamaica.

But then again I am Jamaican, I live here and may well be a little subjective.

However, great stories are told about Jamaica everyday, so now I am simply putting together some of them so you can get an outsider's view of the land of wood and water.

Please scroll below and follow the links. [I will continue to add]

Again, you will realize that when I said that 'Jamaica is not just about the scintillating beaches and the alluring reggae music' I was certainly not the only one who had that view!

OK, enough of my chatter!
