    What sane person from the first world would ever want to “experience true Jamaican culture?” We go for the beaches and resorts. There is nothing alluring about third world despotism.

    Call it whatever you like. Not pretending. Apparently unlike you, I have no attraction to “experience” shitholes.

    Well, every girl on the beautiful island, as well as those stepping off of the cruise ships, wanted my electric green eyed, six-packed torso, blond-haired, richly tanned, white man, whom was born there, but they quickly learned that he had eyes for no other, besides little ole me.

    I went off the ship in Jamaica jest because I wanted to see IT. I'm glad I did, the beach we were taken to was indeed beautiful but fenced off from the roving natives who were dangerous looking creepy critters.
    We went for a Tour of the town on a trolley type thing and I would have felt better if I had my AR 15 with me.
    But we made it safely back on the Ship early I may add and If I ever dock there in the future, I will NOT be getting off the ship.
    HOL, I did not see that Trustworthy native guide to escort me around to see that Native Culture, and I doubt if he exists. Shithole Country.

    Lol, where exactly did you go?

    You should have visited the beautiful island long ago, before more super resorts were built and more automobiles were on the island causing gridlock in certain locales; when you could easily ride a mo-ped around without angering the locals, "Wah guaan ti likkle white uhman?", they frequently and kindly asked, as I tried not to wreck into a herd of goats or the like standing in the middle of the road after a sharp bend, for example, lol.

    As with anywhere, just like here, you must first learn the language, in order to garner their respect and be capable of negotiating. It is an English-based creole with various dialects. The best way to learn it is via listening to music (you do not need to learn to write it... I never did). When via your speech and more you can pass for a local, you are less likely to be taken advantage of, same as with many places here within the U.S.

    When you fly into the airport, rent a car, as opposed to hiring a taxi. The saying goes to keep your watch to the bank (if you are right-handed, of course). If you are more comfortable with taxi service, ensure you hire only those having been approved, and avoid those trolley buses (that was hilarious...)

    As for guides, I do not know what to tell you, other than to check online, being that I have always been protected while there and can travel on my own without issues, for it all. Only two times have I encountered situations which could have gone bad, but I was highly capable of speaking their language, which with a bit of quick wits and local name dropping more than sufficed. You must learn when not to travel there, as well as where not to travel while there.

    Do not travel there anywhere around election times... too dangerous of a year... Being an extremely prominent businessman on the island, the Chinese father (whom was born there, thereby Jamaican) of my Chinese female school friend (whom was also born there) was second on the hit-list (a princess was first) of the man then in power of Jamaica (a socialist with communist tendencies). One of my mentioned female friend's sisters' husband and his friend were said to have been shot down while flying near Cuba a few years later, by Castro's men, and thrown into one of their brutal prisons, with her father having then been blackmailed for information, for many years, until he finally stopped paying it (the two nice men are thought to be deceased and probably were immediately after...). Trees can be fell across the roadways during such times... Non-election times, all is fine, while some election times are worse than others. What you may fail to understand is that they do not have a middle class, and that's what socialism does, which is extremely unfortunate for all.

    As for the place being a dump, it most certainly is not. It is simply a culture very different from this one. The local black people there fail to relate (understand the ways) to most of the black people in which we have here, and the same can be said for the other races. Many within Jamaica fail to understand racism.

    When on the less toured side of the island (southside) and up in a pristine creek, three black women brought a young baby for a bath. I held him within the water and we played. He simply could not take his eyes off of me, shocked over my different appearance. The women were as delighted by this as I was, laughing while saying, "He tink u goddess", because he had never seen a white woman, and they had rarely done so, themselves. He was absolutely precious, as were they. This occured on one of my friend's properties (white British man, while born upon the island, just like the fine man I mentioned within a previous post, and my female school friend is now that property owner's wife, but they primarily live here within the States).

    Regardless of their government, most Jamaicans are good people and the island has much to offer. Being that they do not currently have a confirmed case of the Coronavirus Disease, some there have probably been referring to our country as a dump. That would be my educated guess, lol. Now you can return with new insight.

    Let’s just pray they are keeping our southern board watched closely. We have lots of Chinese come in that way also.

    I'm surprised someone didn't crack Mr. Jokester in the nose and make him re-write his sign..."caution, I have a bloody nose".

    Their coast remains clear, leaving us as the current dumping ground...

    Does anyone know how long this virus can survive without a live host?
    Like can it live on China made products and if so what is the lifespan of the virus on china goods?
    If it stays alive on China goods then maybe we should leave fireworks in China . Look at how much that would spread the virus.

    It's not really clear. Or at least they're not saying anything. They started out with a "14 day incubation period" with people. That changed to 21 days.

    The Communist Chinese have locked down over 400 to 750 million people in their cities and are spraying streets. And it's been a longer period than 21 days. And they're still spraying.

    A few Chinese restaurants have temporarily closed down here. People aren't going. It's not because they're Chinese and just "magically" they'll have the "China Flu". It's because during the Chinese New Year celebration, it is traditional to send each other gifts (family from China) to each other around the world and maybe the virus will be transmitted from crap being shipped in from Red China.
