Peter Collins: From Barry to Barbados with soul

This is an image of the Kensington Oval, Barda...Image via Wikipedia
WalesOnline "BARBADOS Bert limped to his bar stool in the corner of his bar, popped a mint into his mouth and trained his gaze on one of several TV screens showing various sports events.

Even a first-time visitor to Bert’s Bar, just across the road from Accra Beach in Rockley, Barbados, would somehow know the mint-sucking man in the corner was in charge. Bert exudes that air of polite but firm authority which leaves one in no doubt that this is his domain.

I met Bert when I visited Barbados for the first time in 1985, while watching the mighty West Indies cricket team thrash England at the Kensington Oval. I stayed in one of the chalets behind his bar which he lets out to visitors."
