I Am Jamainian (Jamaican & Canadian)!!
by Tammy Stuckey
(Gander, Nfld, Canada)
So there are a few commercials here in Canada for a variety of Canadian products, for example Canadian Beer. We have a beer called Molson Canadian and it's motto is "I AM CANADIAN", but I have my own motto since visiting Negril, Jamaica in 1997; "I AM JAMAINIAN".
So I am a cross between a Canuck (Canadian) and a Jamaican. Yeah mon.. On a serious note though.. I absolutely love your island.. I have met so many amazing and talented people during my six visits there thus far. Trip number seven is in April ..IRIE!
Wow! Nice to hear from you Tammy! – now I have two more phrases/ words I need to trademark, “Jamaicaholic” and “Jamainian”, cool :-)
This is just great to hear from you though Tammy, and that you’ve been here 6 times already, it’s even nicer!
By the way, did you only visit Negril? If not, where else did you go? …just curious.
Oh and yes, we do have some extremely talented people here, and we don’t have to speak about the athletic or sporting prowess but, zero-ing on the tourist industry, there are also the ingenious craft makers, the amazing dancers, the artistic singers, nifty ice carvers and even the dexterous bartenders – they do some amazing stuff with drinks, don’t they?!
I hope you enjoyed some good ole Jamaican food, like ackee and salfish and roasted breadfruit and Fried Fish & Bammy, did you?
If not, please let me know. I can arrange something for you :-)
I notice that you didn’t include any photos though Tammy, do you have any you could share with us my friend?
After six visits, I suspect you do have quite a few. Yes, we’d love for you to share your experience in pictures!
Thanks again Tammy and thanks for sharing the love of Jamaica!Share YOUR Own Jamaican Experience
