Cell phone roaming charges in Jamaica

by Anthony Williams
(S. Wales, UK)

Your article on cell phone rental in Jamaica was a real interesting piece.


Not only did it make me more aware of using mobile phones in Jamaica, but it also gave more insight into the expensive nature of international roaming.

If I ever find the chance to visit Jamaica I'll definitely know where to head to get my celluar phone.

Editor's Note
Thank you for the feedback Anthony. We are glad that you found the article insightful.

With that knowledge, I am positive that you have (or will save) a few hundred dollars on your next vacation - in Jamaica or not :-)

There is another option where vacationers can buy a local phone and then purchase credit/minutes during the time of stay here, but that is probably more economical for those staying a longer period of time.

Please be sure to share the information with friends or associates you think might find it equally useful.

Regards,
Wellesley

Haile Salassie Anniversary Celebrated NEW
by: Anthony Williams


Wed Jan 7, 2014 saw many Afro Caribbeans converge at Fairfield House in Bath, Bristol to celebrate Haile Salassie’s anniversary.

Elias Huggins, from neighbouring city Newport in South Wales, who attended the anniversary for his first time said: “It was a really, really good time, a nice experience and something I’d do again.”

Newport born Elias Huggins mentioned that after initial greetings were exchanged, visitors were played a video of Haile Salassie’s life while in exile between 1936 and 1940 in Bath.
This was followed with a brief, autobiographical narration on other areas of Salassie’s life by one of the house’s trustees.

A meal consisting of rice, sweet potatoes, ackee and red kidney beans (no meat or fish based dishes being served owing to the Rastafarian vegetarian practice there) was served to the visitors once the talk had finished.

When everyone had consumed the gut-filling Caribbean style “veggie” dish, they all took part in a session of bongo playing and singing.
Although not a Rastafarian himself, Elias Huggins said: “More Black people should go there and experience, learn and know more about their culture.”

Fairfield House is where Haile Salassie 1, Lion of Judah and ruler of Ethiopia, spent four years in exile. He left it for the community of Bath on his return to Ethiopia.
