re-DISCOVER The Caribbean – 2010 promo video

We were saddened to hear from Adrian Loveridge that this year’s annual ‘re-DISCOVER The Caribbean’ show probably won’t happen. We see the website is down and that looks like the end: barring some miracle. A shame really, because the show more than paid for itself and promoted pan-Caribbean travel.

Too bad the Barbados Tourism Authority didn’t think of the show themselves because then the BTA would have backed this very successful marketing effort.

We’ve lost count of how many public transit accidents there have been in the last week. Is it three or four? The most serious so far was last Thursday when a mini-bus overturned and left 37 injured. Five passengers are critical, including Troy Codrington – the last remaining adult male in the Codrington family of the Arch Cot disaster.

The toll of ruined lives, broken bones and faces destroyed continued this Saturday evening with the crash of a route taxi near the Globe Drive-In. All we know so far is 9 children and 2 adults injured.  (Nation News: Report of serious accident near the Globe Drive-In.)
