  • Which Of These Places Is The Best For A Vacation? Antigua
    Aruba
    Bahamas
    Curacao
    Dominican Republic
    Grand Cayman
    Jamaica
    Puerto Rico
    St. Lucia
    St. Maarten/St. Martin
    Turks & Caicos
    U.S. Virgin Islands

    Which of these would you say is the best vacation spot for a week? Just going for my mom, and we’re looking for a relaxing environment and very clear beaches.

    Where Does The Country Name “Panama” Originate From? My little sister is doing a country report on Panama and she asked me for help but I have no idea what to say. So she has to have the origination of the name of the country.

    • Curator says:

      There are several theories about the origin of the name “Panama”. Some believe that the country was named after a commonly found species of trees. Others believe that the first settlers arrived in Panama in August, when butterflies abound, and that the name means “many butterflies” in an indigenous language.

      The best known version is that a fishing village and its nearby beach bore the name “Panamá”, which meant “an abundance of fish”. Captain Antonio Tello de Guzmán, while exploring the Pacific side in 1515, stopped in the small indigenous fishing town. This was communicated to the Crown and in 1517 Don Gaspar De Espinosa, a Spanish lieutenant, decided to settle a post there. In 1519, Pedrarias Dávila decided to establish the Empire’s Pacific city in this site. The new settlement replaced Santa María La Antigua del Darién, which had lost its function within the Crown’s global plan after the beginning of the Spanish exploitation of the riches in the Pacific.

      Blending all of the above together, Panamanians believe in general that the word Panama means “abundance of fish, trees and butterflies”. This is the official definition given in social studies textbooks approved by the Ministry of Education in Panama. However, others believe the word Panama comes from the Kuna word “bannaba” which means “distant” or “far away”.

    Word Problem Help Please..? A coffee distributor needs to mix a(n) Gualtemala Antigua coffee blend that normally sells for $8.10 per pound with a Rift Valley coffee blend that normally sells for $13.20 per pound to create 70 pounds of a coffee that can sell for $8.25 per pound. How many pounds of each kind of coffee should they mix?

    • Curator says:

      X+y=70, 8.10x+13.20y=8.25*70=577.50
      Multiply the first equation by -13.20 and add it to the second equation.
      -5.1x= -346.50; x=67.94lb, y=2.06lb.

    • Curator says:

      Panza Verde and Posada del Angel are probably the two fanciest hotels in Antigua. Casa Santo Domingo is the biggest and has a convention center. Porta Hotel Antigua is also a luxury hotel.

      There are a ton of cheap places all over town. US$10 or so for a small room/dorm bed. There are all kinds of places in between those. Cheapest is probably Posada Ruiz #2.

  • Do You Find It Easy To Understand The Jamaican Accent? When I first heard Jamaican accent my impression about it was like “wow it sounds beautiful but I don’t understand a word” haha
    if you want you can listen to these songs:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oHyM5ioLWw
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGlQi5_SGOY
    you will see then what I mean XD
    I can make out some words but it doesn’t help me too much haha. Nevertheless it sounds beautiful!
    And yeah I’m not a native English speaker myself and this is actually why I’m asking this question, I just wanted to know what this accent sounds like to someone whose first language is English but at the same time who is not from Jamaica, and also whether they have any difficulties understanding it.
    Thank you.

    • Curator says:

      If you mean an educated Jamaican speaking standard English with a Jamaican lilt, then no problem. If you mean the creolized English used by the bulk of the ordinary population, then very much so, despite my having spent several years in the Eastern Caribbean (Trinidad, Tobago, Barbados, Antigua…) But then I even have problems with some American English (Hoosier, Cajan, Black inter-city, and with any Hispanic speaker of English).
