for those of you going to negril for the first time, you should read this article
I thought it was a very well done article.
I thought it was pretty lame. She's awfully proud of "my rasta" and doesn't seem to understand or respect Rastafarianism, which, by the way, did NOT begin in Africa. Anyone who cites wikipedia as a source has credibility problems. Also, under "Things To Do in Negril", she comments on one place - Rick's.
Hardly the work of a (successful) writer; very basic and amateurish.Edited: 30 August 2011, 12:51
Have to agree on jammon13 on this one. Outlay of the page makes it look "professional", but should be stuffed in the archives of a tripadvisor experience post and not layed out like a legit source. There is so much more, good and bad, that would be in a legit article.
What's up with the "my Rasta" references.....didn't know you could own one :(
The article isn't that bad, a couple of errors and some lame opinions, but generally 'ok' at best. However for someone living full time in Jamaica now she still sounds like a tourist.
Seems very naive and unprofessional but relatively informative in a "random post on TripAdvisor" kind of way.
i think it's basically a decent article as far as travel info goes -
but .... anyone who uses the word 'RastafarianISM" has no clue what Rastafari is about..... the minute i see or hear that in any conversation about Rasta, credibility goes out the window
Right you are, nevsgal. I can only plead that it was very early and I wasn't fully awake. Had "isms and schisms" explained to me many years ago.
lmao, i didn't mean you jammon - but now that i look at your post more closely, i do see what you mean!Edited: 30 August 2011, 16:43
she's just giving you the Black perspectiveEdited: 30 August 2011, 16:45
matter of fact jammon now that i went back and read your entire comment properly i must say i 100% agree with you....Edited: 30 August 2011, 16:49
