Another beautiful day in Paradise
Beautiful blue skies, white fluffy clouds, cool breeze from the north east trade winds and moderate sunshine with a temperature of approximately 800 F. That was yesterday and that is today here in Barbados; the place I call home, where I was born and raised and where I plan to raise my kids.
A small island of 166 sq/ miles and approximately 280,000 inhabitants, we call ourselves the gem of the Caribbean. A British Colony until 1966, we are one of the most developed Caribbean islands and rank 47/187 on the UNDP Human Development index 2011 and has a literacy rate of 98%.
The birthplace of superstar Rihanna, we are also the playground and retreat to many of the world's rich and famous who want to lay back, relax and experience a normal life without constant bombardment from the public.
Our people are friendly, hospitable and we encourage all to come and experience a slice of paradise.
