Not having seen any monkeys since Sri Lanka (with the exception of few hairy dress-wearing gorillas in Salvador) our first stop had to be the Green Monkeys of Barbados (apparently in a certain light their fur appears to be green??). I'm not sure Chris M is even following the blog anymore due to the lack of monkey pics but just in case he is I overdid the primate photography once again
After dodging some goat-like Barbados Blackbelly Sheep, we took in another Mushroom Rock, another cave, some curious rock paintings, and a couple of really nice looking beaches. It was a fun way to spend the day and gave us a pretty good synopsis of Barbados. Our driver even added a fair bit of social commentary as he pointed out the differences between the wealthy foreigners who were gobbling up primo beachfront properties while driving up the cost of living, and the locals- many of whom were still living in former slave homes (since they couldn't own land, slaves built homes on a stack of stones so they could move the house easily).
Back to the ship just in time to catch the harpist.
