Jamaica in Costa Rica

I went to Jamaica two weeks ago. Not physically, but sentimentally, torn by the waves of the Atlantic sea. Jamaica is in the Limón province, located in the South Caribean portion of Costa Rica. The region is mostly populated by blacks, descendents of Jamaicans and from other Caribean islands. From that interesting encounter, there came a language called patois, a mix of English, French and Spanish. Some call it "broken English". It sounds like music to the ears and it is matter of pride for its inhabitants.
