Barbados: Hospitality on the bus

Categories: Caribbean, Barbados, Travel

Linda Thompkins at My Barbados Blog receives an e-mail [1]from a visitor who was alarmed at an offer from a young Barbadian woman riding with her on a crowded bus to hold her packages. “Let me say it is quite natural for bus riders that are seated to hold packages,” Linda says, “and even your purse. If you've ever been on a bus in Barbados, you know it takes all your strength to just hold on. On more occassions than I can count, I've had Bajans hold my packages and purse.”
