Living in Barbados
Situated in the Caribbean in the western part of the North Atlantic, Barbados is a small island covering 432 square kilometres. A previous British colony, it played a large part in the production of sugar by African slaves and thus 90% of the population are of Afro-Caribbean descent. Despite English being the official language, Barbados has a creole language known as Bajan, is English based but not necessarily understandable for English speakers from other countries. It represents the blend of cultures in Barbados and it has developed a unique culture as a result. The island is known for calypso and soca music and there are several traditional dishes, including Cou-Cou and Flying Fish with spicy gravy, as well as Pudding and Souse which is pickled pork with spicy sweet potato. Barbados is also known for its rum; the famous Cockspur Rum and Malibu originate from the island. Barbados is also famous as the home of Rihanna, a best-selling music artist worldwide; she has been made an Honorary Ambassador for Barbados, for Youth and Culture. The economy of Barbados is well developed and has a large mix of industries, however a 2012 study showed that a fifth of the population live in poverty.
