This week Barbados rolled out the red carpet for Caribbean Community (CARICOM) leaders and international figures, including United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and Commonwealth Secretary General Kamalesh Sharma as it hosted the 36th Heads of Government summit.
But it wasn’t all about intense closed-door meetings. The officials also got the opportunity to sample our rich culture and indulge in a spirit of friendship and camaraderie.
