166 square miles is a very small size for an island.A very small island.Living on Barbados you never ever get the feeling that it is that small.They are many people who have never left the island and who never have any intention of leaving.I certainly don't claim to have that strong an affinity for Barbados.It is just an island that I just happened to have been born on,yet i have never travelled to any other place so far that I like more than Barbados.
