Barbados is swapping places with Guyana

When I first came to Bim in 1988, straight from Jamaica, I was gobsmacked: WOW, what a great little island! Everything worked, the roads were great, phones available in a day, no power cuts, water and garbage services great - it was a "second-world" country!

Now, the place has gone to the dumps: everything fall down. Latest for the last few days/weeks is MAJOR power cuts, I had to just go and buy a standby generator. And whom did I see in the hardware store ahead of me, snapping up the last remaining units? The head of the Barbados Power and Light company!!!

Beat you to that one at least, Made it to Barbados in 1981. Only a 1 day stop over, and as I believe was the regular case the B&B didn't provide the second B as you had to leave early and you couldn't hang around to quarrel. Tiefin Bajaans.
