Bajan Blue....or is it Blue in Barbados.....

I don't think a Bajan would have spent so much for such lousy service or food...well maybe the lousy service but definitely not if it included tasteless food

Times Online: "The return flight for two to Barbados, best available class, is £14,708 on British Airways, £9,504 on Virgin, which is better anyway. So I saved £5,204 on my trip.

Just as well, because my Sandy Lane bill, after adjustment for double charging, was £93,726 for 21 nights — £4,463 a night. Could end up more with the pound dropping like the Zimbabwean dollar. No wonder the rich were squealing."

Maybe Sandy Lane should hire a Barbados chef or at least someone who knows something about Barbados Food.... since according to Winner

The three best meals I had in Barbados were at Fisher Pond Great House. I took Sandy Lane’s chairman, with his terrific family. They loved it. The chairman wrote great praise in the guest book.
I said to MacPherson, purveyor of the worst food ever, “I had the most marvellous lunch at Fisher Pond.” He adopted his usual look of sneering boredom.
Eventually he said, “I’ve been there. Twice.”
“What did you think of it?” I asked. A silence.
Then through gritted teeth he said, “It’s a nice building.”
“I wasn’t asking about the building,” I said. “What about the food?”
MacPherson sniffed, “It’s Bajan,” and walked away.

Will Sandy Lane follow Winner's advice and...“Buy a cannon,” I suggested. “Stuff Grant MacPherson in it. Light touchpaper. Stand back. Then watch him shoot out and drop over the horizon into the Caribbean Sea.”

If they do I have a candidate for the job and she lives right here in Barbados

What does Barbados think of Sandy Lane cuisine?

As someone going there in March I would be very keen to know if it still ranks high on the gourmet hit list.

Barbadians don't like to speak their minds.Bajans are generally a very timid people.Oftentimes they tend to hide and say things because of the fear of victimization.Recently and I suspect for political reasons they have been an upsurge in weblogs,which although in existence for many years have proved an outlet in recent times for people who want to get their opinions across.I too have been tending to use weblogs a lot more frequently now. In the early days I did host my own weblog using a software program called geeklog but now I much prefer to have it hosted by Google.With their frequent updates and improvements they are the obvious choice,not mentioning the price of course.Which brings me to my point which is not a political point but just an observation and maybe just and opinion.I have not been happy with how the rescue operation in Brittons Hill has been done.Barbados as we are aware is a small country with not a lot of resources and certainly not a lot of experience in many …

I hate to look at the Barbados tourists site that give the history of Barbados.The ones that talk of Columbus discovering these islands and the other foolish tales that the Bob Marley and Burning Spear called 'mis-education'.I agree with them as a matter of fact Burning Spear referred to Christopher Columbus as a 'damn blasted liar'.Thank god for Rastafari.One of the funniest stories is the one of the bearded fig tree and the name Los Barbados which was supposed to mean 'the bearded one'.In the words of Gary Cole from the book reflections;The Colonization of Barbados is one of the darkest events and evil stories of modern history.Four centuries ago,Spanish and Portuguese slavers started to kidnap,kill and drive out the thousands of peaceful Indians found on the island the Indians called Ichirouganaim.The exact location of the island was a carefully kept secret but Spanish and Portuguese soldiers and sailors knew the island as the barbarous island,"Los Barb…
