Hello World! My name is Amit Uttamchandani. I am a Barbadian (also known as a Bajan).
Since 1996, I have owned the domain name bajan.org and operated a website for the domain in some form or fashion (more of the former and helluva lot less of the latter). This website is, by far, the most basic website on Barbados that you will ever find as you surf The Intertubes:
There are probably hundreds, no, make that thousands of web pages out there that provide far more information on Barbados! This is not one of them. However, it is one of the oldest, most inconsistent and possibly least entertaining websites out there.
I operate this site as a personally hobby. A labour of love for technology and for country. The Google Ads that you see help to defray things like domain renewal costs (barely). I work on this website outside of my full time day job and personal schedule. I make no guarantee, warranty, nor promise as to its condition and/or accuracy.
For 2012, as was the case years ago, the purpose of this site is to provide basic, no frills information on the island of Barbados. But from the perspective of an actual Barbadian. So, be wary of rampant bias and subjectivity, then again, it's all relative, is it not? Tastes and preferences may vary.
This guide is not endorsed by anyone. It is a rogue guide. Unofficial in every way imaginable. It's a bit like those pirate radio stations several years (decades) ago operating in international waters. Except there is no water, no music and no ship. Actually, this site is nothing like a pirate radio station, but it is unofficial so this site does share something in common with pirate radio.
Be that as it may, my intention in crafting together the sections of this site was to communicate to you, dear reader, the essence of the island. The bare minimum. The stuff that you'd need to know if you were parachuting behind enemy lines with nothing but a dodgy compass and your wits about you. You have been warned.
So there you have it. I do hope you find my guide entertaining, if not somewhat useful. If you are planning to visit Barbados and wish to make contact, drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org
