Sitting on your deck eating breakfast when you see a troop of monkeys scamper across the lawn – pretty close to paradise if you ask me.

There are approximately fourteen thousand green monkeys on the island of Barbados. It is illegal to capture and tame the monkeys – sorry Katy!

We’ve really enjoyed Barbados. The capitol city of Bridgetown is a mixture of old world colonial buildings alongside trendy shops and restaurants. We were very surprised to see so many Canadian Banks here – RBC, CIBC and Scotia all have a significant presence.

Last night we went to Oistens, a small fishing village on the south coast. You can wander through the outdoor stalls and see the fish mongers preparing their seafood for sale. Outdoor restaurants up and down the street cook up the fresh fish as you order. John’s favorite meal was Marlin cooked the old-fashioned Bajan way – fried in oil over a wood fire. It was served with grilled breadfruit and plantains. Whole meal was $9.00 US. I was a fan of the macaroni & cheese pie. Yum!
