Arrival in Barbados

"Pride of Barbados" flower

Despite being detained in customs for forgetting the address of the place where we were staying we made it to Barbados in time for Mum and Dad's 30th Anniversary.

The limes from the lime tree in the back yard went nicely with the country's surplus of rum.

Banana figs, also from the back yard.

The green monkey was brought from Africa over 350 years ago as a type of pet. With no natural predators they soon took over the island. There is a bounty for their heads or an even bigger bounty for their live capture.
