The 11th country on the #rateWI countdown to app launch on August 28th 2019 needs no introduction, but we’re gonna give it anyway! The original spelling of this country was “Xaymaca,” which meant “land of wood and water,” but this was later changed by the Spanish to what we know it as today... Jamaica!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Jamaica is by far the most popular English-speaking West Indian/Caribbean country mainly because of the international pervasiveness of its native dancehall & reggae music. But more than that, Jamaica is famous because of Bob Marley, the track & field dominance of Usain Bolt, and jerk chicken 🤤 but none of those are as important as the 1831-1832 Baptist War slave rebellion, which served as the catalyst for the Slavery Abolition Act in 1833 to abolish slavery throughout the British Empire. ⁣⁣

Thanks, Jamaica... big up ‘uno self! 🤛🏾⁣⁣

The French overseas territory of Martinique is 10th on the #rateWI countdown to app launch on August 28th 2019. ⁣
⁣
Being the largest and only French Windward Island aren’t the main reasons why Martinique is such a popular tourist destination... it’s really because it’s just so damn beautiful! ⁣
⁣
Whether you’re the adventurous type interested in hiking up the sides of the Mount Pelée volcano, or you’d prefer to have a picnic in the Balata Botanical Garden (Jardin de Balata), you’ll eventually understand why the French refer to it as “the Paris of the Antilles.”⁣

9th on the #rateWI countdown to app launch on August 28th 2019 is the British Overseas Territory known as Monserrat. ⁣
⁣
The island is still recovering and rebuilding after two devastating natural disasters in the space of six years at the end of the 20th century:⁣
Hurricane Hugo destroyed more than 90% of Montserrat’s homes and infrastructure in 1989; and although the Soufrière Hills volcano was dormant for over three centuries, it suddenly erupted in 1995 and buried the southern part of the island... thereby making it completely uninhabitable. ⁣
⁣
Not surprisingly, more than half of the population migrated after these disasters, but many are now returning to help restore Montserrat to its beautiful glory days!⁣
