Celebration!


Today is January 21st, Errol Barrow Day in Barbados, where I live.  Just like the American’s have Martin Luther King Day, Barbadians celebrate the birthday of the man who led Barbados to Independence from Britain on a rainy night on the Garrison Savannah on November 30th, 1966.

First Prime Minister of Barbados

Here is a picture of the life sized statue of the Right Excellent Errol Walton Barrow – one of the ten National Heroes of Barbados.

Here’s some more details about him – and you can search the underlying site to find out more about Barbados, too.

Ok! Off to my holiday for the day!

Bajan Tidbit – Because we were colonized only by the British, we drive on the left side of the road, rather than the right, like the majority of the road.  It’s always hard when I have to drive in the US…   haha!
