    Re: $2.00 Jamaican Bill

    Once I went to a Cambio in MOBay to change US$.
    The lady counted out a few bills.
    I said,
    " Whoa Nellie, I should be getting ALOT more money back than that!!"
    The lady was Chinese and I could not understand her accent.

    She was giving me $5,000.00J bills

    Once I realized what was happening, I said

    "NO, no NO!! "
    Please nothing bigger than $1,000.00, please.

    Man, I would hate to lose a $5,000.00J bill.

    Irine,

    I mean like $10 USD a day bargain, bear in mind there were only 2 or 3 hotels on the entire Negril Beach. Families would take you in, there was in many cases no running water no toilets (outhouse instead). Ganja was an unbelievable deal. $10 - 20 USD for a shopping bag full of great herb. I can't speak about other islands but compared to southern Florida Jamaica was an unbelievable deal.

    You are right Cap. I remember Miss Gloria warning us not to bring in any inside the A-Frame. It had to be hidden and consumed outside. The Red Stripes were frequently walking the beach.
