Becoming A Local In Jamaica
(Kelowna, BC, Canada)
Is it possible to move to Jamaica and just move to the mountains build a small home, plant some crops and become a local?
And please don't give one of those "anything is POSSIBLE" lectures please.
I'm wondering if it's feasible to just give up on this bull*** we call society and move to the mountains of Jamrock and start to live with livity, or if I actually have to BUY a plot of land and then maybe do that.
Also like I said would the locals accept me? and possibly help me? or see me as an intruder?
I just have been in love with the Culture of Ras-Tafari and believe that they got how to live figured out, and I want to live that way on that land and am wondering if its a dream worth pursuing.
Greetings from warm Jamaica to BC in Canada!
I appreciate the interest in learning more of, coming to, and integrating into the rich Jamaican culture.
It is certainly possible to become 'local' but that might take some time, depending on how deep you are in the culture of Jamaica.
My humble suggestion would be to visit here a few times (or spend some time here) first to get a true feel of Jamaica, it's people and the culture.
That would give you a solid feel of what to expect and equally important, allow you to start building some key friendships that not only will enhance your local knowledge but also help you - if and when you decide to find and move up into the hills.
I will allow my ardent website fans (Some regular Jamaican visitors and Jamaicans) to add their suggestions or comments as well.
