Living on an island is good

I am one of those people who absolutely love living in Barbados.It is not that I haven't ventured from these shores.I did sometime in the 80's spent a while in the USA.

What I did notice at that time was the newpaper headlines that I saw at times...."minorities scoring higher in SAT's" ...I would sometimes wonder if people could be so ignorant as to not know how foolish these statements......anyhow that is beside the point and irrelevant anyway.

Yes living in Barbados is good although I don't know why ...maybe it is because you can slow down the pace of everthing if you want to and stop for a while.Maybe it is because you don't get lost as an individual functioning for the sole purpose of satisfying the state.....or maybe it is because ever so often the country will pause for a while and wuk up.

Ships galore | Barbados Today

 Barbados Today: "More than 12,000 visitors are expected here on seven ships to the Bridgetown Port tomorrow.

Even as the Barbados Port Inc reports this as a positive development, particularly for tourism stakeholders, the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry believes a good mixture of taxis and tour operators could perhaps help to spread the possible benefits around in moving the visitors from place to place."
