Another beautiful day.A beautiful wet rainy day in Barbados.As I said before I am one of those fellows who loves rainy days.This morning me and my daughter had a long lovely walk in the rain.It seemed as if we were the only two people in Barbados on this day.People disappear in Barbados when the rain is falling,people don't go to work,school children stay at home.Bajans have this thing about the rain.I can never figure it out.

Along the way I passed a garbage truck,you know the trucks that are used for collecting refuse;anyway it was parked at the side of the road while the workers sheltered from the rain.I passed an army of school children sheltering from the rain ..........

In Barbados the worst thing that can happen to you is to get wet by the rain....it will give you bronchitis,pneumonia you name it......unless you are like me.

Face to face with a vicious Akita

I came face to face today with a vicious Akita,me and my little girl, luckily I had her in my arms while we were about to walk through the West Terrace district.We came around a corner and there was this huge Akita.It was actually taller than my little girl.She would have been looking it straight in the face. Now I am naturally afraid of dogs even the smallest of Chihuahuas.I avoided eye contact with the dog although peripherally I could see that he stopped and looked up at me.I continued walking calmly as though there was no threat about. Why do I say he was vicious? That is what I am hearing from people living in the area.Maybe he was just out of his territorial zone but I hope his owners keep in fenced in a lot better.That is something that I wouldn't want to happen again. Just a few months ago a child was mauled by an Akita.There was a time when the main dogs you used to encounter was the 'lowly' salmon tot retriever;A unique Barbados mongrel.Such is not the case now.To
