When I was 5 years old I had the opportunity of having the best childhood ever. My family was transferred to BARBADOS and we lived there till I was 10. When people say Island life is the best, well it’s true. The smell of ocean, the perfect weather, the crystalin waters and the pink and white sandy beaches. It is somethinvg amazing…
Barbados is an island country in the Caribbean Sea. The island has an area of about 430 km². Its capital is Bridgetown.
The influence of the English on Barbados is more noticeable than on other islands in the West Indies.
A good example of this is the island’s national sport, cricket.
Citizens are officially called Barbadians. In the music business, Rihanna (born Robyn Fenty) is one of Barbados’ best-knownGrammy winning artists. In Barbados, the official language is English. But they also speak an English-African Creole language known as Bajan.
It is a VERY popular tourist destination.
I will someday go back and share with old friends I still talk to and sit at the shores of ACCRA Beach, while we watch the pink,yellow and blue sunsets.
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music. It was developed in Brazil mainly by African descendants with native Brazilian influences, probably beginning in the 16th century. Capoeira used in genuine self-defense situations incorporating many sweeps and low moves. demonstrations of acrobatics, full cartwheels for evasion, and flips or other exotic techniques.
The dance was incorporated to avoid detection and corporal punishments. If slaves were caught practicing fighting techniques, they could be punished or executed. With music and rhythmic moves, they raised no suspicion of escape attempts.
Here are some interesting facts I thought would be great to share.
