On our first visit to Barbados, we enjoyed a taxi tour with an entertaining driver, who we should refer to as Romeo. Across the island he waved at and spoke to all the ladies on the streets and porches by name. They would call out his name and wave back. We were so captured by this live demonstration that we failed to see most of the sights.
On our second visit, Azamara’s excursion was well guided, but Romeo was missing. We visited a busy carving business which harvests its own wood stock from tropical trees, and finished our tour at a distillery for lunch. On starting the trip my $10.00 watch suffered a broken wrist band, which I had to carry in my pocket. After traveling half-way around the world, I found a $10.00 replacement, watch, band and all in the Barbados port shoppes.
