Today is Kadooment Day in Barbados,the culmination of all the Crop Over activities.I have been mindfully watching everyone slowly working themselves into a frenzy and trying to figure out what it is all about.

Okay today we are going to be having the cultural exhibition of the Bands as they march past the judges at the National Stadium straight to the Spring garden Highway.The costumes will be depicting certain themes of relevance to our Caribbean society.Calypso music will be blaring or blasting the more popular songs of the season.Pomp and pageantry,colour and festivities,history and culture.

Almost everyone will be in some kind of frenzy today.Condom sales tend to skyrocket at this time as well as alcoholic drink.Skimpy wear is the order of day.They will be jutting and rutting and jucking today and not necessarily in that order. I am thinking to myself this could be heaven or this could be hell.

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."
