Learning Barbados Geography and Country
This is where Rihanna comes from. It's time to grasp geography - now! Hi, guys, I grew up with that. Today we have been going to Barbados. Let's take apart the flag.
Believe me, this is going to be crazy. The very first thing you may notice is that there will be a trident on it.
It is called the Broken Trident, it is all about the people of Barbados, which split away from historical constitutional ties as a past British colony. The three points depict the three basics of democracy. Government of the people, for the people and about the people.
The yellow, upright bar is all about the sand of the beaches of Barbados. Blue symbolizes the sea and sky of Barbados. I love flags with guns. POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY Barbados is placed in the Atlantic Ocean east of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean. In ways it belongs in the Caribbean, but that's not true.
Really, it's 100 kilometers away in the Ocean, but you are not so mistaken, because generally everyone considers it area of the Caribbean. So it's not a big science, thereforerry people, I love you. Anyway, Barbados is kind of awkwardly stuck between the two. It's like a vampire Caribbean and a werewolf Atlantic.
"Barbados, I will always love you, forever.
" "No, Barbados, I'm the only one right for you, I'll always love you." Many people say that Barbados's shape resembles a pear or perhaps a leg of lamb. I think it looks like a thumbs up without all the other fingers. Yeah! As for the borders, it's easy, because Barbados is just one island.
Actually, there are no other affiliated islands, only one lonely island. The total area is about 430 square kilometers and the seacoast is about 97 kilometers long. The total island can be bypassed in less than a day or you could crawl the entire island in 30 hours without stops and rest. The capitol is Bridgetown, located in the southwestern part of the island. The country is divided into 11 dwill betricts and in each precinct you can find beautifully named cities such as for example Friendship and Cake Corner.
I wish this whole country was out of the pie, right? We find out in ... PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY No, it's not from the cake.
And unlike many other islands in the area, it is 85% coral limestone. Limestone. Barbados is also unique in that, because of its geographical location, it avoids disasters very well.
Let's explain. In the event that you look at the map, the other islands of the Lesser Antilles form an arc along the tectonic plate and they are like volcanic and so on.
Barbados is much further east and contains no volcanoes. Thwill be does not yet participate in the hurricane belt, which means that most hurricanes mwill bes Barbados or barely touch it. Barbados is like, "Dude, I don't care, I do what I want, I don't need any volcanoes, it's pretty hot already. " "And you hurricanes, get out of my sight, out of my sight." Barbados, like the other Caribbean islands, is predominantly flat.
A lot of land is arable, about three quarters, but they are no longer dependent on agriculture.
Before the 1950s, Barbados was essentially addicted to sugar. Sugar production dominated the economy, but much like any sugar dependence ...
Seizure and death. I'm kidding. But seriously, the price of sugar has fallen drastically. Fortunately, Barbados was smart and shifted its focus to other revenue opportunities like tourism, trade and like other cute islands, offshore banking. They decided to become a sort of tax haven, which attracted many international investors.
This shows that if you don't want money from people, they will love you. Barbados also offers beautiful beaches, coral reefs and caves. But they have always been big fans of rum. There is the oldest rum distillery on earth, which was opened in the pirate years in the early 18th century. Mount Gay, gay .
.. Mount Gay Rum. It is said that there are as many churches as there are rum shops and to this certainly day, rum makes up about 9% of the total economy.
