Yesterday after starting out from our old rented house we drove to a nearby farmers' market before continuing to the hotel. Personally I wasn't very sad about leaving the rented house because I knew we were going to be in a nice comfy hotel.
At the market there I saw there was lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. The nice thing about being in the tropics is that the fruit can be brought as fresh as you can get it, right off the tree. Once we had finished looking at the market (which was, by the way, a lot smaller than I expected it to be) we went to a little place nearby and had smoothies. There were also some weird decorations in there including a row of white-plastic hands and coat hangers bent into strange shapes.

in London's Trafalgar Sq.)
Then we went to the hotel and found the room was ready. Me and my dad went to look at the executive lounge while my mom and my sister went to the pool. The executive lounge had chandeliers.
Then we had dinner and went to bed.
Yesterday we woke up and had breakfast at the hotel's buffet which I liked it very much. We spent most of the morning after that swimming. There were three pools at the hotel a baby pool, a regular pool, and an infinity pool which was deeper and had a waterfall that went over the edge.
Then we went to look at Bridgetown, which is the capital city of Barbados. The place was a bit ragged and in a state of disrepair. There wasn't much that was interesting either the only two things that we did see were a statue of Lord Nelson and the Parliament Building.
Then we drove to a small restaurant called Blakeleys that was on a beach. We got a table on the balcony and ate lamb chops with BBQ sauce and fries. Then we went home.
