Although I have put the link to this page in my forum entitled Travelling through Latin America, I thought it deserves a separate forum, so I am putting it here also.

When I visited Jamaica on business, I sometimes got caught with these terms, so if you intend to go there (it is a beautiful country), you might want to have it with you.

This is the link. Your comments, please.

Enjoy it.

"agoogoo wanna binga danga inda wy wy wy"
