barbudaful shopping

There are several small shops in Barbuda and they sell a range of things from essential hardware to food and drink. There are no major supermarkets, supplies are sometimes hard to find and are much more expensive than Antigua, but this is mostly as a result of Barbudans having to import everything from Antigua on the small cargo boats that come once a week. The fresh meat, fish, fruit and vegetables that are produced here are cheaper and better quality than Antigua, but everything imported is often quickly sold out. If we have to go to Antigua for our business it's time consuming and expensive - the air or ferry fare, plus a hire car, taxis and overnight accomodation - because you can't get everything done in one day - costs Barbudans more than Antiguans and the additional transport cost of bringing it all back to Barbuda inevitably has to be passed on to the customer.

We like this...

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
