Barbados Landscapes

Bridgetown, Barbados

Bridgetown on a Sunday afternoon, without the usual hustle and bustle. According to the World Bank, the population density of Barbados is 661 persons per square km putting it up into the top 15 most densely populated countries in the world. And that doesn't account for the tourist or the undocumented population.






The Public Library



It is said (by those who say) that Barbados has one of the highest amounts of churches per square kilometre in the world.













Old time stores - there aren't many like this anymore
