the buzz





Take a collision of the Atlantic crustal and Caribbean plates, throw in a volcanic eruption and what do you have? Barbados. Unique by geological standards, Barbados was formed when the two land masses joined together and eventually built up a coral formation that stretched to 300 feet. The cuisine of Barbados offers fresh, regional island ingredients, most notably its seafood. Snapper, mahi mahi and many types of shellfish are featured in local dishes. Flying fish sandwiches known as “cutters” are a local favorite, as is pepper pot, a stew made with oxtail and beef. And be sure to sample the “fruits” of the island: sweet potatoes, plantains, breadfruit, yams, pears, soursops, pawpaws, bananas, figs and coconuts are all specialties of Barbados.

About me:
My name is Kimberley and I'm 18 years old. I live on a tiny island in the caribbean called Barbados. I enjoy spending time on the computer surfing the net, chatting and making websites. I like reading and taking walks... though it doesn't seem as though I have time for either these days. In September I will be attending the University of the West Indies to pursure a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Management.
