Regardless of where you’re from, when you’re here, you instantly get that ‘IRIE’ vibe.Jamaica is the third largest island in the Greater Antilles and the largest English speaking island in the Caribbean.Our tally of gold medals in the most recent Olympic games is a testament to the phenomenal feats Jamaicans are capable of achieving.Sprint mega stars such as Shelly Anne Fraser, Usain “Lightning” Bolt, and Yohan Blake are now household names across the globe.
Talking to friends of different ages and backgrounds has allowed me to discover many practices and beliefs outside my immediate experience.🙂I LOVE MY COUNTRY and I view myself as an ambassador for Jamaica.I always try to enlighten foreigners about this wonderful nation and invite them to visit as their arrivals are beneficial to the continued growth of our tourism industry.It may seem strange for a formal lottery game to be included in Jamaican customs, but Cash Pot has become an institution among working class Jamaicans since its introduction a few years ago. Buyers use these marks, as well as guesses, dreams, and other signs (called rakes) to help them decide which number to buy.Cash Pot is based on Drop Pan, a game brought to Jamaica by Chinese immigrants. There is a minimum price per ticket, but no maximum. Many participants believe that the numbers are not randomly chosen, but are picked by a "Chineyman" who is constantly trying to outsmart them.
