Chinese???, this term was used for Chinese workers (for eg. on the Railway) in N.America, and of course there were lots of Chinese in Jamaica..it's amazing how diverse the population of the Carribbean was and how mobile populations were. Panama has towns still that are almost exclusively Jamaican, there as decendents from workers who went to Dig the Canal, the first and second time. And reading about the early history of jamaica, and it's relation to Hispaniola (now Haiti and the Dominican republic I believe), Cuba, and all the islands in the chain, enthralling stuff.
there is just so much history to get stuck into there.
