Helen - the Germaican (German Jamaican)
I have found your web page by chance - I am excited! You did a good job! I'm a passionate admirer of your beautiful island. No, I was never there. Don't travel at all.
It started harmlessly. A friend visited the USA and I asked for an email address to improve my English skills. I got an address.
Years later, I learned WHO was my penpal: a former Jamaican singer!
I became curious about his music and about this little island.
I started to learn everything about reggae, mento, ska, rock steady and, and, and. If you want to understand reggae lyrics, you must also know Jamaican patois. This is quite difficult for an old German lady, lol, so I struggle with dictionaries and grammar books.
I know almost more about the Jamaican history than about the German history. Hahaha, if you ask a German, he would say Pocomania is a new Japanese cartoon, a Rasta is a junkie and Science is something what you can learn at the university.
Nevertheless I still know so little and I hope to learn much more!
Meanwhile I love this distant island and I live there in my dreams.
Wow! So hearty to hear from you Helen. Welcome to the family my friend, the MIJ family. We certainly feel the passion. Please continue to share the love and keep us posted with Jamaican happenings from your side, as much as we continue to keep you connected to your dream island -Jamaica. Love and Thnx.
