Far from the fancy resorts and pristine beaches that attract all of the tourists is the real Barbadian lifestyle. Mostly you will find modest old homes huddled together near former plantations. The island is divided into eleven parishes, all of which were named after saints by the early English settlers. Each one has a local church and, until 1967, they had their own government councils. This rundown home is in the island’s smallest parish: Saint Andrew. Its 6,500 residents are only 2% of the country’s total population.
