Dear Friend,

Mi glad yu deh yah!


I'm glad you're here... or in other words...

Thank you for visiting and a warm Jamaican welcome!

My name is Dottson "Richie" Bando and I'm the Publisher/Editor of

The sunny island of Jamaica is where I call home. I grew up in a small seaside community called Galina (it's less than 20 miles east of Ocho Rios)... and I've always had a passion to learn more about my country. came about as a result of my desire to share what I'm learning with others. I've already discovered many varied and wonderful facts which I've shared with you on this website.

Please bear in mind that this site is a work in progress and I only work on it on a part-time basis. If you've ever been to Jamaica (or know someone who has been here), please don't hesitate to contribute to the growth of the site by submitting your story.

(If you're interested in knowing about my web host - I owe those folks much of my success - click here to find out about them.)

Once again, it's a pleasure having you here and I hope you find some valuable information. In addition, if you're visiting us for vacation, I hope your Jamaica Dream Vacation comes true!

Of course, if you have comments, questions or suggestions about this website, please click here to get in touch with me.

P.S. The photo above was taken by my friend Melecia (Thank you Mel!) and it wasn't edited in any way. All I did was add a border and rotate it. Expect to see more scenery like it in Jamaica:o)

P.P.S. I got married in May 2015 to my darling Tashena. I hope you enjoy watching the video slideshow below.
